2 years ago my daddy passed away. In March 2011 my mother came to live with me and my husband. Some days were good, some ok, some a nightmare. She ran back and forth from Texas to Iowa. Most times demanding I beg her to come back. She gave me money for an inheritance and paid for some remodeling of our house that was being sold and paid for airfare when my dad's last brother was dying so we could be there. She always said no repayment was necessary. We provided her a home, food, cigarettes at times, transportation - whatever we could do for her, we did. Now we are thieves, liars, cheats and I'm trash because I'm white and my husband is hispanic. She is back in Iowa living with my cousin because she can't live alone after falling and breaking something in her back. She has sent back every piece of jewelry I ever gave her and the cell phone we were providing for her (which we are paying for cause her contract just renewed for 2 years). I've posted here before when she was making me on the verge of a breakdown and my psychologist told me to stay away from her cause she is aggravating my MS. Like a fool, I still tried to be the "good" daughter - being an only child is hell!! Do I give up? How does one just forget their mother and get on with life? I'm 59 and feel like I'm 12! My husband of 35 years is tired and angry that she hurts me like this so often. Am I nuts or is she?
