Don't Abuse me Because I'm the Daughter.

by Mobrien
(Australia)

Dad passed away over 10yrs ago. Mother now at 89 yrs of age. Always complaining no one understands the pain (neck) and dizziness she goes thru.

Doesn't participate in anything stays on the bed all day.

Even though I live over an hour and 1/2 away and visit every 2nd weekend to help do her shopping and bits and pieces. This is not enough.
She says I don't do anything for her - behind my back and I caught her out saying this to someone she knows. When I confronted her - she denied everything that was said.
She had become a self pity mother with no regarding for anyone or anything.
I don't want to have anything to do with her.

Your mom is clearly lonely and depressed. The best thing that could ever happen to her would be for her to go to a retirement home.

These are usually a building with small apartments where the resident there go down to a common dining area to eat. If she can afford it (with or without the sale of her house), it sounds like to me you need to get her out of there.
