My mother is living with us for 6 months now. She’s angry, bitter, rude, narcissistic and only cares for herself. I am an only child, with health issues myself. She has always treated me this way, but now talks to my sweet husband the same way. He has always shown complete respect to her. He is a good man. Happy all the time. She talks down to us both and is basically taking over the whole house. We have to serve what she wants for dinner and I could go on and on. She’s had 3 surgeries and we have waited on her hand and foot. And we take care of her 4 dogs in our home as well. We have two of our own. So now it’s 6. I don’t enjoy my own home anymore. I can feel her anger everywhere in my home. I don’t know what to do. She can’t stay here. I have no clue what to do with her. If she stays here, my marriage will be over, or I myself will be dead within a year. I am so confused about how to deal with her. I don’t want this in my home. I have tried speaking nicely to her about it. She has a foul mouth and my granddaughter is 2. She spends a lot of time here. I don’t like my granddaughter even around her. Help? Anyone else in this situation? All she wants to do is fight. 24/7
shes always been this way. It’s not age, not illness. It’s just who she is. She has not one friend or family member but me.
I can’t sleep. I’m distraught and feel helpless. She didn’t take care of me as a child. My dad raised me, while she was out partying and changing men like underwear. I want to do the right thing by her, but what is the right thing. How far do I let her go, before I have no life left?
if you got this far, thank you!
