I was divorced 2 years ago, I was a stay-at-home mom. My mother's boyfriend/fiancé that supported her passed away. My mom cared for my kids after school and made sure they got on the bus in the morning for school. I am on a very limited income. My mother had nowhere else to go, so she moved in with me. My relationship was okay with her, but I have a very hard time because she didn't take care of me. I moved out at 15 because I had nowhere else to go, and was in an abusive relationship until I finally figured a way out. My mom gets about $100 a month from my father's maintenance order, she had settled for thousands and blew that money last year. Her boyfriend didn't think to have a will, and his daughter took everything. My mom has no work history, and claims to have health problems that deter her from working. She was denied for disability, but filed it by herself. I can't afford a lawyer to help her. I pay for everything we need. She asks for money for gas and cigarettes sometimes, but usually is okay on that. I can't kick her out. I think she lacks "life smarts", and I don't know what she would do. But, I also need her to help with the kids for an hour until I get home. I spoke to her about a job, but she said she can't. I am burnt out. I do all the housework, work two jobs, and take care of my babies. My boyfriend moved in to help, and we have no privacy. I feel like I'm stuck with her forever, and I need my privacy! I've taken care of my grandma, my brother, and now her. All the while, I'm struggling. I don't know what to do here. I cried so hard when she first got there because I felt bad for her, but I really just need my life to come together. It seems there's an obstacle in every direction I go. Is there help out there for women like her? I'd do anything to get her her own home! She's only 60, and I'm 27. I feel like I'm being a parent to her.
