My mom has been waking up about 3 AM and coming into my room. She says "I am scared, can I sleep in here?" I want to say NO! How can I say no to her when she is scared?
The attachment issue is getting on my nerves. She has an internal clock that knows when I am not working. If she happens to be with someone past my work schedule, which rarely happens, she fakes illness/pain to get home. It amazes me that she isn't cognizant of anything but my work schedule and my absence. Feeling trapped!
