(Page, Arizona Coconino)
My mother and I have never had a good relationship!! She's negative, racist and has always been angry!! She has made poor choices in life resulting in the loss of her ranch and became homeless. She wrote me a letter asking for help and now lives with me. I'm helping her pay off her debts and even sold my car to do this, I'm going into debt myself now!!
She says nasty things under her breath, doesn't have anything nice to say to me and hides out in her room constantly!! She won't help me with anything around the house but has rearranged my home without asking me first!! She basically treats me like a stranger in my own home!!
She is 83, overweight, and I'm seeing the beginning of dementia. She's refusing to talk about it or anything else that's of concern!! Help!!!! What can I do to make this work???
