I told Mom this morning that she needed to eat her oatmeal rather than coffee and cookies. She refused to listen so I picked up the container and set it on the table so she picked up a second container and heaved it across the room tossing muffins all over the dining room in a fit of anger.
Today was weird anyway as she would not sit at the table to eat but took her bowl to the kitchen counter she then took all her eye drops and refused to use them but would not give them back for refrigeration, screaming at me the entire time. Then the tossing of food began. I was so upset that I was shaking and had to call my sister to come to the house to help me as i just couldn't put up with her not listening and screaming at me to shut up and get the hell out of HER house.
I went to my bedroom to calm down and in just a few minutes she showed up with dog food and a knife in her hand. I have been afraid that she was going to stab me someday so when i saw the knife I told her to leave my room, which she eventually did. I have since removed all knifes except one for food preparation.
My sister who lives with us would not come home to help, so I had to pull another sister out of work to come and help me. When she arrived she asked Mom what was going on? Mom replied, "I don't know what is going on around here this morning?" She was meek as a lamb, while I am shaking and have a pounding headache.
I told sister #1 that if I had to pull sister #2 out of work, then I was going to pay her for the time and money she lost today. She has a home and 2 children and her husband is dead. Where sister #1 and I live in Mom's home to care for her. Am I wrong in thinking this is the right thing to do? Sister #1 is upset about it, but she was not willing to leave her job today to come home. I am here every day all day long and I do not get paid a cent and I pay rent and for food. I feel like sister #2 can least afford to lose pay as she has a house payment and two children to care for. What do you think, I need input.
