My Mother keeps pretending to be sicker than she is. Any suggestions?
My mom is 85. She keeps pretending to be sicker than she is. She also pretends that she can't speak well. Some would ask, "How do I know." It's easy . She gets sick every Saturday, when home health doesn't come. She does this to frustrate me and make me stay home. My sister nearby is a drunk. The one downtown doesn't care too much. The one in Alabama just sends texts telling me what to do. I'm seeing a counselor . For a while I just prayed for death to come to me. I still don't enjoy living. I lost my best sister in January. My mom faked a heart attack to avoid the funeral. Does anyone have any suggestions ? I live with her but I need to move out but don't want a guilty conscious when she dies, if she precedes me in death. Any thoughts ?
