I am a Better Mother to my Mother then She Was to Me.
My mother married 3 times,..and had 5 serious relationships for my years in high school. She left me alone with her alcoholic abusive husband,..divorced him then dated several others,..leaving me home every weekend without food in the fridge.
Now, however,...she wants me to be at her call, 24/7 to take her to do her errands, clean for her,..doctor appointments,..etc. My other sibling does nothing and lives far away from it all. I get no thanks from that sibling either,..just toxic grief.
Anyway,...usually I'm okay,..but I do feel guilt and resentment. The resentments of my youth started to rise to the top like foam on coffee,..when her demands increased. Its a thankless,..hard job. Thanks for you ear today:)
