Mom lives in garage apartment on my sister and brother-in-laws property. They are due home tonight after a two week vacation. I don't know how I would have lasted must longer. I totally give up the tv remote to her - she is 85 and has hearing aids but has the tv so loud it is frustrating. She complains it is too cold then complains it is too hot. she stays in her winter pj's all day. When she said she was hot I said change your clothes but she did not. She will put on a sweater when she is cold but still complains. Her apartment is about 20-25 minutes away and I offered to take her there during the day then bring her home but no she said she wanted to stay here with me. Is it rude for me just to go in my room to have time to myself. I have no one living with me. My grandchildren come over a lot but they are fun and easier to communicate with and please. My sister and I feel guilty about not having patience with her. When the phone rings she stares at you until you tell her who you are talking to then wants to know everything that has been said. She can fix herself food in her microwave and I want to try to encourage her to stay in her apartment during the day if my sister goes out of town again more that a couple of days. She has a cell phone phone and knows how to use it. I am just so glad my sister will be meeting me tomorrow to get mom. She wants to pay for my meal when we go out and offers to pay for some of the groceries. She just has these obsessions such as when I have fixed a meal then get up to go to another room and come back she has emptied my drink in the sink and thrown my food in the trash. She does this in a fast food place, too. She throws my drink away when I plan to take it with me. These are just a few of the things she does. She does not want me to put my cat outside if it is cold or raining. On and on. Think I may need to find a support group. What are your thoughts?
