My very independent 85 year old mom has never been a particularly nice person except in public. Now I take her to her appointments because she can’t find the offices and it’s scary for everyone else. She calls the office and yells at the staff for not having a more visible address!
Now she seems mad from the minute we start an outing. Why do they talk to YOU??? I'M THE PATIENT.
We had an appointment to establish with a new Doctor when ours retired. I went to another room and she saw him solo. He found an abnormal thyroid test and wanted to repeat it, but she insulted him and said she does not want to take a thyroid med and wants to consult her Cardiologist.
Its not what she says as much as how she says it. EVIL.
I talked her into having the test repeated and when the Assistant came out to discuss the result she talked in low tones and Mom went off on her. WHAT ARE YOU SAYING? IM THE PATIENT!!!!
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? EXPLAIN IT!!!!
She laid into me in the car and I lost it!
I had to say that it isn’t anyone’s fault that she has health issues, and I’m not going to take her to my Doctors office for her to behave this way.
She needs the help but hates me giving it.
Feeling unloved and unappreciated. I moved 1500 miles to be here to help her now she hates me.
