My mother is almost 83 yrs old. I am 49 and my son is 17. He has been with me since his mother left when he was almost 4. I started my own contracting company at that time so I had the freedom to pick him up and drop him off to school etc. My step father passed away 3 yrs ago and since then my mother has gone downhill. She was always difficult but now its become almost unbearable. My son and I moved in to her house because it was simply costing me too much to drive the miles and miles that I was in the first 2 yrs following her husbands death. My business has gone in the toilette and I have run out of money. I now just do everything for my mother in between continuing to raise my son. An example of my mothers forgetfulness is as recent as today. She went into town to pick up her dogs food and some other items. She came home with nothing after being gone for 2.5 hrs. I even made her a list (which she didn't read). I make all her meals and fix everything in her house. I changed her oil yesterday. Today she forgot. She says incredibly mean things to me and behind my back. I am so tired of looking after others while my life goes unattended. My relationship of 4 yrs ended 2 yrs ago when I was busy working and raising my son and looking after my mother. I have no idea what to do. My brother hasn't spoken to or seen my mother in 30 yrs and my sister drinks a lot and gets very angry with her and is now "out of the picture". Its all on me and I have little left to work with. I want to get on with my life. Back to my life. Hell...I just want a life !! Can someone help me figure out what to do ??
