The Only Option for Mother

by joyce

My mother and I were never close, a long story in the past. She is living with me and has limited income due to her gambling her assets away through the years since my father passed 20 years ago.


She is beginning to upset my husband due to her poor me syndrome. She has no joy and hates waking up in the morning knowing she has another day to face. I have tried to get support for her through Doctors and people in our community. I know that God has a plan. We are going on 5 years now.

How can I keep my marriage safe from her emotional problems. We live in a 1100 sq foot house together. My husband works from home.

I would suggest that you and your husband see a counselor for a few sessions and then sit down with your Mom and set some ground rules for her continuing to live in your home.

You are not obligated to a life of misery because your Mom mismanaged her life up to this point. If you don't like the first counselor you see, find another one. Good luck to you ...
