Mother is Mean and Horrible

My mother is horrible. She calls me crying that she is cold and that wind is coming through her door (its winter), and I tell her I can come by after work.


She cries even louder and begs me to come now. I end up having to leave work, get there, put up plastic and tape (total driving time 3 hrs) and by the time I get back to work, she calls to tell me she ripped it all down because it was crooked.

I bought her a $3000.00 bed because she complained hers was twenty years old. When it was delivered, she yelled and complained it wasn't what she picked out and when I explained to her that it was, she told me to go to hell and shove the bed up my posterior.

We got nurses and people to come in and help her, and she yells at them all and/or kicks them out.

When she is hospitalized, she is mean and cruel to the staff calling them not nice names, telling them they don't know what they are doing, and doesn't let them do what they are suppose to.

There is no reasoning with her, and I am currently ignoring her phone calls because she is driving me and everyone else crazy. She has congenital heart disease and kidney disease but that hasn't stopped her from being horrible to be around.

I just can't handle this right now, and I have to ignore her. I will lose my mind.
