I live in Colorado and my mom lives in Louisiana. My Dad passed away in September. I work full time but I fly to Louisiana every month or two for a week. I just returned from a 10 day stay. She is 83 and has COPD. The entire 10 days she treated me awful. She is angry because I won't move in with her. She tells me she wished she never had me. She tells me how awful I am and that I am no better than a stranger. I have her set up with 24/7 caregivers but give them the time off while I am there. She was behind on her utility bills and I tried to help her pay them and she told me do stay out of her business. She said that the only reason that I am there is because I want her money. I love her so much but cannot continue to be treated this way. I have tried to explain that to her and she just yells at me. Everything wrong in her life is my fault in her mind. I miss my Dad terribly...he was such a sweet man. I know that she treated him badly also. I witnessed a lot of it. I just returned to Colorado last night and can't stop crying. I called her and she told me to stop calling her every day that there is no point because we are just strangers. I forgot to mention that this is nothing new - she has always treated me this way - it just gets worse the older that she gets.
