All of her life since I was 2 years old my Mother has battled depression.
She is now 77 or 78 years old and all she does is complain about her physical ailments like her back. No matter what I may be talking about she ALWAYS bring the conversation back to her physical ailments. Which I strongly feel she should be talking to her Husband, therapist, or start attending support groups.
I live with a chronic mental illness manic depression which is bad. I take meds but I live all alone w/o any support, love , or community. Another thing my Mother says is this "I'm old" I could have foot fungus she'll say "I'm old". She always feels sorry for herself which is so hard on me!
It's gotten so bad for me that it's triggered my own illness & I damaged my own apartment which I will have to pay for out of my own pocket. So I can't talk to Mom whatsoever due to this. I have no one to turn to. And get this Mom see's a psychologist since the 90's. Hard to tell the way she is acting. Seems to me that she is getting worse! Way worse. I want to just leave & disappear.
This mother of mine is causing me to suffer I can't take it anymore.
She was extremely abusive when I was a teen. Now as an elderly woman remarried for the 3rd time she has turned into someone with a martyr complex.
