My bf is 25 and he has taken care of his mother for the majority of his life. She is disabled and lives off the government. She also likes to sue people for money and take advantage of insurance. (Insurance fraud possibly) She lives alone, my bf and I live together. However she demands to see her son every day. He works from 7-6pm then goes to her house till 8pm which leaves me only 4 hours with him. But by that time he is usually to tired to spend time with me, he's sluggish and falls asleep almost instantly.
I took her into my home for 2 months and she managed to drive everyone crazy. She had 3 dogs which were not potty trained so every day the house smelled horribly like poop. She would wait till her son got home for him to clean. If she did decide to clean this (if she cleaned at all) was to get a towel pick up the poop and rinse it in the kitchen sink overy the dishes. Because of this a person in the house got extremely ill. She would also go into other peoples rooms (we live with 3 other people) and rummage threw thier personal belonging then deny it when she was caught. She loves to gossip and would tell other peoples buisness (everything and anything ) to her friend on the phone. She somehow would leave the house and pester the neighbors by entering thier property to snoop with the excuse that she was looking for her dog. I also own 2 dogs who are on a schedual for feeding (they have food allergies), I asked her to leave them alone and not feed them. She would of course feed them and when caught deny it. The dogs got sick too.... many other things happened to where I couldn't take it anymore and had to ask her to move back home. But while she was living with us I let her have the run of the house. Everyone bent backwards for her needs. It was exhausting.
My bf cannot see her as wrong, he always has an excuse for her behavior.and when I forcefully moved her out, she made a big deal that I disrespected her and then he made me apologies to her!
So now she is alone. Recently she fell. She has zero balance from a bad foot and hip but refuses to use a cane or walker. She actually falls a lot. She has a new bruuse to show me almost every week. I tell my bf that she cannot take care of herself. She can bearly walk, doesn't eat much. Is addicted to pain killers, coca cola and cigarettes. We are just starting a life together and now he's telling me he wants to move in with her. But I refuse to live in that house. All her dogs poop anywhere along with the cats. The house reeks because she can't clean. I can't eat I the house because I feel so unclean.
I think I'm rambling.
Well point is. The lady is unbearable to live with, I tried and I simply cannot. My bf and I were talking about starting a family but it feels like we are taking a step back wards instead.
I was browsing other questions and found these quotes that fit into my situation
. Loving a parent and being a responsible child does NOT mean that the parent can demand that their child's lives be devoted to them solely.

continue giving him the benefit of the doubt over and over and over, feel resentment then feel guilty for feeling it,
I am sure she never intended to let him go. I know these types and they emotionally cripple their children for life.
mom's had a death grip on this 'man's' balls for quite some time and from the sounds of it she's not about to let loose. And he allows it.
Maipulates him therefore causing him guilt. He will not begin to live his life until she dies. She has made it clear that he is her servent
independent living facility where she gets meals, exercise, intellectual stimulation and a little "push" to be more independent. when she lived alone at home, she was emotionally needy, frightened and isolated.
