Do They Know Better?

by JMP
(Cotati)

My mother in-law is an older woman of 81. I am disabled myself with Epilepsy. I can't work or drive. The phrase that they say is "A Disabled Person does not have to take care of another disabled person" That is what I am doing. She is from another country, speaks about 10 words of English. I have tried to talk to my husband. He won't listen to me. I think he has memories of her "Glory Years".


If she spoke English, I could talk till dooms day. I have prayed for strength many times. But for a disabled person to have to fix breakfast, lunch, dinner, get her bath ready, do laundry and fold her clothes.

It is not about helping it is I am treated like a maid. I am 55, can't work or drive. I want my life back! I am no provider. Only to my OWN immediate family!💁
