Unfortunately I have to use her car through the week to get my son to school, take her or myself or teen to an appointment or to run her errands, so she uses that as a reason for me to answer the phone through the week, and when I dont its always, it could've been an emergency or as much as I do for you, mind you I never ask her to do anything, she just does it. But I feel as though she holds things against me if I am not at her beck and call when she wants. She can be very critical and hateful and controlling. I know she has turned alot of people away and its like I'm her dumpster for every emotion she is feeling or anything negative she has experienced If I don't agree I'm against her. I have my own issues dealing with MS and a teenager. I look at the phone sometimes and cringe not wanting to answer the phone. I am in the process of getting my own car. When Friday comes I gladly hand over her car. Even then if she calls its what are you doing or why aren't you answering your phone. I have tried to have a decent conversation with her about this it always ends in an argument. She has gotten to be so bad it affects my teen. My Mom is single and lives alone. Never been married.
