Emotionally Angry Most of the Time
I moved in with Mom 4 years ago. I'm 70 now, she's 91. There are times like tonight, that I hate her.
Her casual suggestions are meddlesome, demanding, self absorbed,and insulting. I'm living on Social Security. Taking care of her is a full time job.
Mom's embarrassed that I feel like I need more money. After all she's providing the house, and food for me to live on to take care of her.
I tried to get her to apply for Medical, but she dug in her heels, enlisted the aid of my sister who agreed with her. After all what in the world would I need more money for anyway?
I feel trapped, caught between a rock and a hard place, I resent the situation, the siblings, the other relatives who tell me they appreciate my situation but do so little to really get it. Especially the sister who lives close.
This is a toxic situation and I can not do this much longer.
I'm applying for a job, so adding more work on top of what I've got to do for this woman I do not like is going to be interesting at my age.
I don't know what else to do. AND you can bet I feel guilty hating my Mother.
