So my mom contacted an agency for help. She calls this woman. The woman is on the phone, loud where I can hear her. I heard her say, "Where's your daughter? If she's not gonna help you...". I lost it. I heard her say "Everybody needs to do their part paying the rent and the bills. I lost it again. I have paid rent and bills amongst other things. I had to leave the room. I understand my mom needs help but that doesn't mean I haven't been doing my best. I'm so mad. If I call her directly or go over there, it might not be good. I have been taking care of my mother by myself for over 5 years; and it has gotten progressively harder. I have been chronically ill for the last 2 years. I managed somehow to graduate from one school and I am about to start at another. Plus I am young too and trying to navigate this world for the first time.
My mom tried to speak up but I feel that once the woman started in with the "Your daughter" stuff, she should have cut her off immediately. How do you handle it?
