Hi! This is my first post here... how do you all cope when frustrated with an older parent? I blew up today and lost my temper with my mother and feel awful. I've told her a million times (and the doctor has as well) not to do certain things when I am not in the room (I live with her). I promised I'd straighten up the kitchen and do the floors when I got off of a work call (I am working from home now due to COVID) and... no sooner do I get upstairs do I hear a crash. She took it upon herself to take the floor steamer and try to steam the floor and she slipped and fell. She had told me she was going on her chair to rest. I lost it and yelled at her for this and feel horrible for not being sympathetic. She has a lot of health issues and has ben told by doctors to not do as much as she used to. She's 71. I am an only child and am the only one taking care of her.
Thank you for your advice. :-)
