Stressed Out

by Marcie
(New York)

I receive several phone calls a day from my mother complaining about my dad, and the fact she feels I do not do enough for her. I am exhausted, depressed. I work in a school, and this summer, my dear husband also had knee surgery, so I was physically caring for him, too. I want a few days of no stress and a couple of days that, well, I get to have my own way.


I want normal conversations with her that do not involve her anger and hatred. I am ready to crawl in a hole. She wants to move here, hates my dad. I could not do it. I do not want to do it.

My brother died in October, and my SIL is also giving us a run for our money. He did not have a will, so there are some things that have caused financial problems. I do not want to get too much into this, but, this adds to my stress.
