My 83 year old mother lives with me and my husband. My older sister recently died and I paid for the majority of the funeral expenses and wiped out my savings. Her husband of four years gave me most of her jewelry, excluding the really expensive pieces such as her engagement and wedding rings and her diamond earrings. Much of her jewelry was not in good condition, bent earrings, single earrings, broken chains, etc. Her husband gave a diamond ring that she received from my mother for her high school graduation (in 1970) to my niece (her daughter). My mother keeps telling me that she wanted it back. My mother and I went through teach remaining piece of jewelry and decided what to keep and what to sell. I kept one ring and my mom kept two rings, none of the rings have monetary value, but are a remembrance piece. Yesterday my mother told me that I should not have sold the other jewelry and wanted the ring I have worn every day since my sister passed away. My mother also informed me that it was rightfully hers because my sister meant more to her because it was her daughter and I was only her sister. My mother frequently puts me down and tells me that I mistreat her. I not only pay for her medications (thousands of dollars annually), I take her everywhere I go with my husband, dinner, movies, theater, etc. I do her laundry and cook all her meals. She rarely thanks me and tells me I owe her because she gave birth to me. She once told me that I was the worst mistake she ever made. I am angry and hurt all the time. I am really beginning to resent my mother, and that is very sad because until a few years ago we had such a wonderful relationship. She makes nasty comments to me and my husband frequently. We cannot afford an ALF and she would not go willingly anyway, so that is not a viable option. She has some memory issues and walks with a cane or walker, but is not ready for a nursing home.
