I have been taking care of my Mom for the last 10 years. I am beyond burned out. She has quite the challenging personality. For the last 39 years she has had dogs that were not potty trained in the house. Three years ago, she adopted a dog that is now well over 100 lbs. My mom has severe balance issues and this dog has almost knocked her over several times. In addition to cleaning up after her. I am beyond disgusted by her hoarding and dog issues. I am in the process of finding a new home for my Mom’s dog. My Mom claims to need the dog for companionship but she can no longer properly care for a dog and this dog is neglected and yelled at because she pees and poops inside the house. My Mom physically can’t let her out anymore. My Mom is pretty much one fall away from a nursing home. I am actively seeking a home for the dog but have to deal with it in the meantime. To complicate matters, my mom refuses to get any of her papers in order so when she does pass or go into a nursing home, it is going to be complete chaos. My Mom could easily be diagnosed as having a narcissistic personality disorder. I have put my life on hold for the last 10 years and I feel like I need to take back my life now. My mom lives with my brother who is also a hoarder and is financially dependent on her. I can’t wait until this nightmare is over but what can I do in the meantime?
