I don't mean money! She believes that children should take care of their parents because of everything that was done for them in the past. For example, I drive my mother everywhere, as she refuses to use a driving service which she can well afford. She says that because she drove me around as a child, I should now drive her. While I say to her that that is very faulty logic, she refuses to back down. Do I just ignore her, make myself unavailable, or what? I have two sisters, but she claims they are "busy," and doesn't want to bother them. I am a retired widow and live nearby, but after three years ot waiting on mom (she is a widow also and is 88), I am just sick of being her servant. My plan is to limit my time to two days a week, three hours in the afternoon. I'm going to tell her and my sisters this is all I am prepared to do. Does anyone have an opinion on any of what I've written? I just hate being taken for granted!
