I just recently moved back in with my parents at the age of 45. My mother has diabetes, end stage renal disease, hateful disease among other problems. She does not walk, cannot dress herself and is almost completely total care. My father was just diagnosed with prostate cancer and in my opinion is unable to care for her full time, not to mention his condition requires rest, etc.
My mother has never liked me and I am adopted. She has never shown me love or affection.
A little background. Childhood was picture perfect to the outsider looking in, church every Sunday, her involved in school, etc. But behind the curtain I always felt left out. My older brother, also adopted, was always the preferred one by her.
My brother became an alcoholic at age 15 and it took his life 2 days before his 40th birthday. She was by his side every second of that.
I became pregnant at 16 and they adopted my daughter and also raised her.
I became a drug addict at the age of 21 and have been off drugs for several years. I tried to get help and she was not there for me.
Now that I have moved back home she has been more hateful than ever, even though I do so much for her.
She told me this morning she didn't care if I was alive or dead.
I am at wits end and don't know what to do.
