Both of us were appointed legally by the State of AZ.
Just curious if anyone else out there is in this same position?
Due to having to care for my mother full time, I had to move in with her. Not long after moving in, I lost my job due to her excessive calls to my work and constantly making me late for work or having me leave work early because she needed me. No Job means no money, so I also had my car repo'd after being unable to make the paymenrs and insurance, etc.
So now I'm here 24/7 and she is very very mean to me and treats me as a slave every moment she's awake which is all the time.
The conservator sends money to an acct when I request it, it is all accounted for and all has to be spent on my mother, none of it can be spent on myself. He does pay me 50 bucks a month phone bill, that is all.
Entire sitaution really doesn't seem fair but whatever. I guess my question is. ..
When I do have someone come look after mom while I get a break (a few hours a week, if I'm lucky)
I reminded by everyone that this respite time is for "me"..
How does one use respite time for themselves when they have absolutely no money, no income, etc. to go see a movie, go thrift shop, or do anything?
This makes no sense to me.
