Frustrated

by Cassie
(Texas)

Widowed mom lives in Oregon, I (only child) live in Texas. Mom seems very angry all the time, doesn't want help from anybody, like my cousin who took control of her checkbook because she would drain her account dry by not keeping track of her expenses and bills. Fired my cousin. Fired her pharmacy because they wouldn't deliver.


Tells me things she thinks I want to hear, then does something else. Is very hateful to people who don't think the way she believes (religion, politics). She has turned into a woman I don't know, totally opposite of the mom who raised me. In that sense, I feel like I have been deceived. She raised me not to be bigoted. Now she is very prejudiced toward anyone who looks or believes in things that are not the same as hers.

I feel very helpless/guilty that I'm not the perfect daughter who will take care of her.

Blech!
