Dr, family, friends cannot persuade her. She insists that everyone is just wrong, and that she only has some age related memory problems. I cannot get her to take any action necessary to manage her affairs, and she is increasingly angry that people are bypassing her and talking directly to me. I have been staying with her since August and have resigned myself to the idea that I must remain with her. One of the many problems is that I am still paying for an apartment in another state where I was living, and I am afraid to leave her alone while I go wrap up what had been my life, and collect my car and other stuff. I have no friends or local support, and my inability to cope with the stresses of trying to care for someone that resents all my efforts is taking a substantial toll on my own health. I thought about petitioning for guardianship, but quite frankly, I cannot afford the legal fees. Any thoughts or ideas about how I can create an anchor point so that I can begin to help her and myself will be greatly appreciated. I am feeling overwhelmed and helpless.
