My Mother and I were best friends before her stroke. When I disagreed with placing Mom in a nursing home my siblings coerced my Mom to cut me and my family completely out of her life. I miss my Mom terribly. I don't know how to live without my Mom (she lives 20 minutes from me) in my life. I reported this and the financial exploitation to the authorities, but all I'm told is the investigation is on-going. It's been almost 6 months since I've seen my Mother and I believe it's slowly killing me. I'm living in my own hell now.
