My mother is 87 and lives with us. She moved in a few months ago. She has end stage COPD. She is declining quickly, her memory is going. She talks ALL the time though. She is always right and you better not contradict her! I have to listen to her all day everyday when I’m home (still working full time) also I’m an only child so my only help is my husband and sometimes my daughter.
This weekend I finally had enough of her bad mouthing my kids and I told her. I wasn’t yelling or cussing. I just told her that she was misinformed and that we needed to agree to disagree. I haven’t really talked to her much only to see if she needed something regarding care.. food water meds etc. no small talk. She said this morning that if she is bothering us she would move back to her place ( we haven’t sold it yet) and get someone to take care of her. She doesn’t mean this she is only wanting me to say no you have to stay here with us... I didn’t reply to her. I have taken most things from her but I cannot budge where my kids are concerned (her grandchildren) This has hurt me so deeply I don’t know how I can keep going 💗
I keep wandering why God has put me in this position? What am I supposed to learn from this season?
Thank you 🙏🏻 😞
