My Mother has Become so Angry
I went to visit my parents who live about 1,800 miles from us. They are 75 and 85.
My younger brother died two years ago of a drug overdose and my sister two months ago from suicide. It has been very tough.
But, my mother physically went after my older brothers wife saying she is afraid that my older brother will commit suicide because she is not caring for him right or getting help (gambling issue) for him.
My mother said that she will be the next to go and that she will not watch another child die. It was crazy and I felt like she took all this anger and pain out on my older brothers wife! It was awful.
Now she has created this huge problem within the family and my brother's marriage. Why is she acting like this?
I don't know what to do for her. I live so far away. I know that at one time she was on medication for hearing things that were not there but has since stopped that medication.
I know she is depressed about money as well. She is just so negative. Always makes comments about why I don't visit more often.
I buy them what they need when I'm there and try to do things with them but most of the time they just want to sit in their apartment and do nothing. Even when I'm there I feel like I have to make them spend time with me outside of their apartment.
I'm so frustrated because I love them but I can't wait to leave because of how they are. What do I do ???
