I Feel Isolated from my Kids

by Diane
( SOUTH DAKOTA)

I moved my mother out of a nursing home in November and brought her to live with me. I did this without consulting my 3 adult children because I did not value their opinions. I expected nothing out of them simply because they wouldn't visit their grandmother even if they were only a few blocks from her; so, I knew better than to expect anything more!


What I did ask of them when I brought her home with me was to call me occasionally and see how I was doing. I rarely hear from them at all. They call if they need/want something, otherwise, nothing. I have called, texted, emailed them just asking them to keep contact with me. Nothing.

It makes me so sad to think they don't think any more of me than this. I don't ask for any assistance with my mother, so I am in this boat alone..and that is exactly how I feel--totally alone.
