My mother was a decent parent and my childhood wasn't bad but she has always tended to interfere with my relationships and criticize under the guise of advice. This has gotten so much worse as her health has declined and her mobility has decreased. I'm struggling to maintain some life of my own while helping her but often feel punished for going and doing anything. Today was a prime example of that and I'm now sitting in my bathroom crying. All I was going to do was grab a bite to eat with my daughter and she went off. I'm feeling resentful that she is so demanding; expects me to be at her beck and call and twists everything into being my fault. I'm sorry but having to go to the grocery every single day is just ridiculous. I was informed that is because I don't sit down to discuss things with her; she never knows what's going on etc. I have dinner with her nearly every night; if I'm going somewhere I tell her and keep her updated like I did when I was a teenager - is there something I'm missing that I should be doing. I know I'm rambling but I'm so tired and so stressed... I just want to give up.
