Dumped on Daughter

I am tired of taking care of a difficult person (my mom). My dad was not NEAR as demanding as her. She wants me to give up my career to just sit with her. I am resentful of every second I have to spend with her.


She is argumentative, mean, uncooperative and will not follow the doctors instructions (keep her legs up). That's all she has to do is keep her legs up but will not do it. There is always some excuse. "I was going/coming from the bathroom" or I have to sit up with my legs hanging off the bed to take a drink of water.

She is ungrateful and expects you to be at her beck and call and is demanding. The home health nurses have even commented about what a handful she is.

She needs 24/7 nursing care due to wounds on legs from swelling but refuses to consider it.
