My mother lives with me and is and has been for most of my life, an emotionally dependent. I have a full time job, a husband who would like ot have time with me and my two sons are still living with me. I am tired of taking care of people. It would help me if I could find a local meeting to attend where people can share their frustrations, guilt feelings and feellings of being a prisoner in their own home. that's what I feel like, trapped. All my mother will say are things designed to make me feel guilty. I think she is being selfish to not want to pay for my friend to stay with her while my husband and I take a weekend off!
My girlfriend comes each day and helps my mom while I work. She is great and my mom loves her, but she is moving. My mom is so afraid of running out of money before she runs out f life. She is terrified at the thought of going to a nursing home. I would never send my mom to a nursing home, but I do need a couple of 4 day weekends a year! And I think I deserve it. My mom says, "I would never leave my mother!"
Please help me! I am desperate.
