The last few months she has had one problem after the other. I know I'm not responsible for solving all her problems. But ........ It's just so depressing to hear one problem after the other from her. She makes some of her problems more difficult because of her relationship with my brother. Allowing him to determine what she buys and spends. Letting him rule her life. She is in her right mind and has been allowing my brother to rule her life since he was a young teen. He is now 52 years old and lives with her.
