My mother has a laundry list of health challenges related to age, obesity and depression. She's also extremely stubborn and narrow-minded. She's prone to having major breakdowns and tantrums when things don't go her way.
I don't know how to approach her without hitting a wall. Does anyone have experience talking to, caring for, and otherwise engaging a parent who is so difficult? I don't know where to start or even how to gather my thoughts right now. How do I get involved with her medical care? How do I avoid enabling her? How do I not let frustration get the best of me?
We live on opposite coasts at this time. I'm expecting that I'll either move in with her or have her move to a home near me.
