I have another problem with my mother. She is very lonely, even though I see her every day, and many times she maker herself ill from anxiety. I went away for the weekend, and had her lined up to visit friends while I was gone, and i come back to her being ill with digestive problems as a result of anxiety. How do I continue to live my life (in a limited way), and manage her anxiety. This is a catch 22 and a total balancing act, between work, my kids, my husband, and my mother.
