Hi, folks...me AGAIN. For thosebod you that dont know, I brought my 84 year old mother to live with me. She's been living with me for the past 5 years. At first, things seemed to go smoothly. The longer she is with me, the more controlling she's been trying to be. For example, she tries to force me into going to bed whenever *she* wants to go...she continually notes that "It's 5 o'clock. Don't you think you should be getting dinner?"....she tries to force me to feed or potty our dogs whenever *she* thinks it needs to be done....she tries to force me to bring my horses in at times that they can be outside....etc. It's not just one subject or event but ALL facets of my life. And when I say she 'tries to force' me, I mean that she just harps & harps & harps on stuff, badgering away endlessly at whichever subject she's trying to manipulate even when I tell her that I'm an adult, I know what I'm doing & I've made my decision on how it should be handled. It just doesn't stop her! She keeps right on hammering away about it until I either get sick of it & get up & do it her way just to get her to shut up or I get ticked enough to yell at her.....and then, of course, I'm a horrible, awful person. She literally treats me like I'm 10 & it's driving me insane. The ironic part in all of this is that my whole life all I ever heard was how her mother wouldn't let her do things her high school & college friends were doing (staying out late for football games, wearing lipstick, etc) & how she always resented her mother for that. I've thrown that back in mom's face & I either get a complete denial that she's like that or I get the horrible, awful thing again. I've tried ignoring the repeated badgering & not responding to her once I've explained my reasons for the decision I've made but then she gets ticked & starts screaming at me & revisits the horrible, awful subject again. I'm SO sick of this behavior that I'm well past resenting her. Anyone encountered this & what did you do about it?
