I swear mom deliberately does or says things to aggravate me. Or does she? Mom is an expert in the victim role and she can adjust her “abilities “ according to who is present at the time. When the situation calls for her to be in the now, she’s on top of her game. My theory is that since she chooses to do nothing but literally sit in Her Chair 24/7 and watch tv, I feel she gets bored and wants attention so she will repeatedly do or say things that she knows irritates the hell out of me. And yes, she has mobility with her walker, and no, she has zero interest in doing anything besides existing in Her Chair watching tv. I have tried countless times to engage her in something different to no avail. She is only 72 , why doesn’t she embrace her mobility? I’m really starting to believe she simply has a nasty streak that she takes out on me. I don’t want to feel like this but it sure seems to be the case. When I try to talk to her about it, she goes into “no I don’t “ mode or into “ yes, everything is my fault” flying tizzy like a brat child. Or she says nothing and turns the tv back up. She does not ever “remember “ anything that may not be in her favor or preserve her righteousness. Does anyone else have behavior like this from their LO? How do you deal with it?
