Why can't I be by myself? Well Mom, you can't walk, you can't cook, you can't drive, you can't go to the bathroom by yourself, you can't be in control of your medications, I could go on and on. I told her I also hate the fact that she NEEDS someone with her 24/7 but her choices are to deal with it or go to a nursing home. Her morning caregiver told me today that Mom is mad at her because caregiver won't take her shopping every day. The weather has not been good here (lots of rain) but Mom doesn't care. She says she is sick and tired of being in the house all the time (I get that) but you can't get her to understand that taking her out can be difficult. I took her to get flowers and groceries on Sunday and it completely wore her out.
Isn't this fun? LOL!!
