I feel like my mother is gearing up for another melt down. The last one put her in the hospital for two days. Even her doctor's nurse noticed that my mother (86) and her sister (90) seem to be coming in for what appears to be more psychosomatic issues than real ones. My aunt's are related to her increased senile dementia and quite harmless. But my mother seems to be creating hers to point up her martyrdom and gain attention. Her stories don't add up, and her agitation is from within. She's never happy but doesn't accept that she created her own situation by wanting to control everything. Their doctor's prediction to me privately was that it will end badly because of them not listening to anyone and continually getting into trouble that could have been avoided. They live alone, but I help them two days a week, and balance work and family. It's never enough, and my mother is continually challenging my boundaries and angry when she doesn't get her own way, which is to entertain her since she is bored and frustrated. I can't keep running to put out fires that she starts, but there is no reasoning with her. Any input would be much appreciated.
