Really Getting Depressed and Resentful

by Currey
(PA.)

My father had two strokes and now has some cognitive and motor deficits. I work and pay somebody to sit with him during the day and when I come home it's a never ending chore after chore for him.


My sister waltzes by when the mood hits her and I HATE MY LIFE.
I am ready to scream.

I GET IT
by: Anonymous

I feel your pain. I have never seen one person - my Mother - need so many others to make her life "smooth." I am exhausted and the chores never end. Worse it is usually doing something to help her feel comfortable with the OCD she has had her entire life.

I get instructions on how to empty the litter box. Please.. it is just cat waste not nuclear science. My only suggestion is to set boundaries.

Of course when I do she pouts and tries to make my life miserable. No big surprise - she has done that her whole life. I really don't care anymore, I am tired of trying to make someone happy who will never be happy because there is a big hole that needs to be filled.
