For the last 3 1/2 years I have spent 24/7 for 4 to 4 1/2 month with my mother through the winter and then a day or two weekly through the summer. Her memory is getting bad, she repeats herself, she constantly talks about who is sick and dying, she always talks about how bad old houses and abandoned buildings look every time we go through town, over and over, I have heard this 100 times plus. I took 2 1/2 weeks off to stay away and give myself a break and went to see her yesterday to straighten out some med issues and found myself angry all over again because she started all over again with the same stuff. Who died, who is sick, we drove through town and I heard the same stuff. She needs to sell her house because her property is getting too much for us and we feel her me,org is starting to spiral down and my sister and I have proposed she live between us, she can't afford ALF for very long and there are none with. 30 miles. What is wrong with me? I was a nurse for 40 yrs. why am I having such a hard time tolerating her? I love her dearly and am very protective of her but I just find myself looking at her and getting angry. I am the only child that has put so much time into caring for my mother. Help, I don't want to,feel this way.
