Stress son with family
I am the youngest of three boys, I'm 52, taking care of 82 year old disabled mother. She has always been negative, controlling and never have a positive comment to me or my family.
Any food we give she is bad and complains about but the menu. She has no problem making hurtful comments that offend me or my children.
Example, daughter's senior picture, she makes the comment that she didn't like them because she looked too fat, in front of my daughter. No matter what we do, there is nothing positive, always a negative and disrespectful comments.
I am getting old and tired, sometimes I feel guilty, I know she has been through many difficult things, but my mental health is being affected. I don't know what to do...... I love her, but honestly I sometimes don't want to be near her or have my wife and children with her.
I do everything for her as whatever she said I try to deal with, I don't want my family that be abused and offended by her.
