Help My 90 Year Old Mother is Killing Me!
(Drexel Hill, PA. US)
It was 4 1/2 years ago my mother was in debt and she decided it would be best to move in. I have a sister living 5 minutes away sbd never calls nor helps.
My mother is an only child and aleays had gotten her way. My husband has been unemployed from his IT job for 10 years but has worked any job he can presently at a local convience store.
I had my own in home day care for 21 years but had to skip a year ago because of my mothers tantrums if she wasn't in the lime light.
I work part time at night in a mall because she still drives and its very difficult being able to use her car. My husband and I have no time together because she'll start an argument.
We dont go out socially nor does anyone come over. She has full control of our living space and tv. I teach my grandchildren during the day and they arent permitted in the livingroom and she's extremely jealous of my 6 year old grandaughter because we are so close.
She stays up very late at night and wants things done like bills paid or making her sonething to eat. She argues about everything and it has resulted to my husband sitting in the basement and me in my room.
This is my house and I have to ask permissuon for anything I do. We ask for no money and everyrhing is done for her. The only thing I can't do is make her dinner because most night my husbabd and working.
I'm so stressed out that I'm sick every day besides being very depressed. We have no medical benifits so we cant even get medicated.
People believe I should just set her straight but nobidy knows the consequence I would pay. Please can anyone help me!!!!!
