Hi, I'm 44 and have been seeing a lovely man since Xmas. My elderly mother doesn't like him. No reason but she says he isn't good enough for me. I had been single for a long time before I met this guy and had a lot of time to spend with her. Now I've met him she says I have no time for her. This isn't true. I speak to her everyday, I see her every Sunday for lunch but now if I have something on and can't make Sunday, she tells me I don't care about my family anymore and am putting this man first. I can't take any more of this as I feel she is trying to control me and I'm 44. I'm happy and fulfilled for the first time in a long time and she doesn't seem to like it. She seems to resent the fact I have a bf. yday she told me she is changing the power of attorney to my younger brother as he would look after her more than me. I was terribly upset about this as when my father died, I did everything for her and him even organising the funeral. It was tough on me but I rose to it and dealt with everything brilliantly. I just feel she is saying this as she doesn't like my partner. I love him and have told her he is going nowhere but she won't include him in family meals, she won't even invite him. And he likes her! I don't know whether to tell my partner what she's said but I am really upset with her. Any advice?
