I am new to this site. My mom has lived with us for 14 yrs come Oct. She has always had arthritis and has had 2 knee replacements and a hip replacement. She is in fairly good health but my problem is that it has been FOURTEEN years of her here with me, hubby, and 2 kids. I am finding it hard to "keep it up" these days. I am short in my conversations with her, avoid her (in my own home) and I just need to get away from the situation a lot. Normal feelings, I am sure but where does one find the "fight" to keep going with normal, daily, stuff??? Any suggestions?
