Having a Talk with my Brother About our Mother
My mother is 87 years old with Pulmonary Fibrosis she just had Heita Hernia surgery 3 months ago. She insists on going to the grocery store and can't manager to get up and down the isles, she gets down and few and the expects me to run up and down getting her groceries to put in her basket, then has me check them out and pay.
She doesn't want to face the fact that she is too old to go shopping and her breathing problem has made things worse. She is brutal to me calling me fat and saying really horrible things to me. I started saying them back to her telling her I won't take her abuse and stopping the conversation and walking away.
I am on anxiety medication because she is so brutal on me calling me fat and telling me I'm a horrible daughter. I finally put a stop to it today, I told her is too frail to go shopping after yet again I'm feeling like I'm going to pass out going in the grocery store.
I offered instead to take her out to lunch on Saturday's and do her shopping for her. Even if I do her shopping she criticizes everything I get and do. I want the 20 oz instead of the 16 oz.
I don't know how to deal with her anymore and I feel like I'm going to have a heart attack I'm on anxiety medication and I keep getting worse. What do I do?
