We live a few blocks away. We have someone coming in to help her everyday for four hours. Last night about 8:30, she called us weeping, saying that she hadn’t eaten all day. (Trying to put some kind of guilt trip on us) She has lots of food in the house. Grocery shopping is done weekly. Come to find out, she had a sandwich late in the day and told her helper that she wasn’t hungry before she left. Lies and manipulation. I wouldn’t mind if she was authentic and just called and asked for help, but it makes me crazy when she starts with all of the drama and lies. She is a total narcissist and never asks about our lives, just one complaint after another. If she gets a clear bill of health for one thing, she dreams up another issue that has to be addressed. My husband takes care of her bills, house maintenance, taxes, tv problems, etc. and he has yet to hear a simple thank you for all that he does. After completing one thing, she goes right on to the next thing that she needs done. Her conversations are grating. If I say that my husband had something removed at the dermatologist, her reply will be, “oh, I have something on my arm that needs to be checked out.” She asked us to buy a bed for her, so we tried to find the best deal.. We spent many hours checking on our options, price, sales, meeting with sales-people, etc. After all of that, she casually said, “oh, I changed my mind....I’m going to hold off on that.” She is legally blind, but is mobile and very well taken care of. We used to offer to take her out to dinner, shopping, anything to get her out of the house, but she will always find some excuse why she can’t go, then she lays around complaining about everything. I know there are no answers to this problem, but I need to vent. I feel like I don’t even want to call her because she just complains and talks about minute health concerns that she should be talking to her doctor about. Thank you for letting me vent.
