I've always been a disappointment to her - I don't know why. I've given her 6 lovely grandchildren and great grans. I work and have a full life and am basically nice to people! She's criticized me all my life and said some really dreadful things but now it's even worse - and at 60 I can t take it any more. My brother - her wonderful son - barely visits her and does nothing to help. She snaps at me about everything I do - where I put the shopping, if I touch anything, whatever I do is wrong. I broke down today and told her what I thought and how I can't go on and that I'm sorry I'm not my brother. Now I feel awful. I know she's very old and I sort everything for her so she can stay at home like she wants to but however hard I try - it's wrong - Help me to survive!!
