I can't do anything right!

by Liza
(Birmingham)

My mom has had 2 strokes, the 1st 7 years ago and the last 4 years ago.


I'm 36 and a single mom to 2 kids, 9 & 6. No contact with father. My sister lives 200 miles away and is married with 2 grown kids. She's 52.
Sister understands moms constant illnesses are getting me down.

I get blamed for not caring enough, going to see her. She doesn't ask me, expects me to mind read.
Has chest I section now n pleurisy. Keeps crying, kids do t want to go round.

We were really close now she knows nothing of my problems with my son wanting to see violent dad, blaming me, school worried any him. Money problems and other hard emotional issues.

I feel like I hate her now, my mom, I don't want to see her she is always miserable!!
And thinks I do nothing so should be with her.

I can't do this for another 20 yrs maybe!?
Help I'm so alone with my problems, I'm drinking too much too.
