I am 26 years old and take care of my husbands 87 year old grandmother who lives with us. Im a female and I work in the medical field so she depends on me for a lot of stuff and has become like a toddler and attached to my hip. I dont get hardly any me time at all so I choose to get up at the crack of dawn on Saturday mornings and sit in the living room with my cup of coffee in silence in hopes that no one will find me there. Low and behold she always manages to find me and always says I shouldnt be sitting in here by myself and proceeds to sit down with me and try to talk. Since she has interupted the only quiet time I get at all I get frustrated and at times I can tell that she senses my frustration which in turn makes me feel guilty. I have tried explaining to her that I dont mind that time to myself and that I NEED that time to myself and yet she still does it. She lost her husband 2 years ago and I know she probably doesnt sleep really good because she doesnt do a whole lot during the day when I am at work because she doesnt want to risk falling, and I know she misses that companionship of just talking to someone who van relate to her, but its a hard battle of asking her for that me time and feeling guilty seeing her go back to bed or just taking her company on those mornings and making the most of it. Any advice?
