My mother is a recluse and lives with my husband and I. She did not want to go to the doctor when she became very sick. I could tell she had bronchitis so I kept asking her to see a doctor. She would not go. She finally listened to my husband when he told her that he thought she had bronchitis and feared it would turn into pneumonia. My mother told me she would go because she was tired of hearing me ask her over and over to go to the doctor. She did see a doctor and she had bronchitis. The doctor had difficulty getting my mother to take deep breaths when examining her. She was indeed very sick as I suspected, but she would not listen to me and that made me mad. I am glad she went to the doctor. How do I deal with the anger when she does not listen to me when I just want to help her?
