My mother gets something on her mind and won't let it drop. It's not that she's not right about some things, but she lectures me like I'm a child about how my kids are turning out badly, and I'm at my wit's end! I already have job problems that have taken their toll a husband who is so-selfcentered that he can't see straight, and children who don't behave because of myhusband's attitude towards me and being a father in general. I live with problems everyday, and here constant criticizing and critiquing is driving me crazy. The only one who lets me be is my dad. He has to take care of Mom, and he is trying to help me with several issues, incuding those at work. I can't tell Mom that I already know what she is saying because she gets mad and calls me disrespectful. I am caught between a rock and a hard place, and if things don't improve for me soon, I am going to be the one needing help. My life is not great, right now, and Mom has always tended to be like she is, but it's 100 times worse, now that she is older.
