My big question is what do you do when you mother fights any and every suggestion that you have. It is like she is a active senior trapped in an aging body. She wants only to do the things that she could do 10-15 years ago and is not willing to settle for anything less. So bottom line, she watches TV and becomes more and more bitter. Then when I suggest an activity that might be more "age appropriate" her only answer is NO.
I feel like I am going crazy, I am angry more and more, and now I am beginning to lose patience and lash out verbally.
How do I cope and how do I get her to be a little more flexible.
