My Mom, who moved here a few years ago, has decided that she wants to move "back home." She seems to forget that "back home" there was no one willing to care for her, especially my sib.
Now she has this fantasy that there is this wonderful assisted living center where all of her old friends live and will help with her care. Mom does not have dementia or any other cognitive problems - just this weird notion that back home she will be happy and cared for.
I shouldn't take it personally, but after 3 years of being her primary caregiver and providing her a safe and healthy environment, she wants to go back to something that does not exist. I told her that it was disrespectful to say these things to me, but she will not give up this fantasy.
She is ruthlessly stubborn and will just do all of this on her own. Should I just wash my hands of everything, take her "back home," and hope my sib steps up? There is already so much drama going on in my life right now, I just cannot take much more
