Too Many Life Saving Medications!
If there was a plug to pull I would have yanked it out yesterday. I don't blame the doctors as I know you are sworn to do everything you can for a patient, but "modern medicine" is keeping people alive for too long.
In my case, my mother hasn't done anything productive in over a decade because she's too ill to live a normal life or hold a job, but definitely too healthy to be anywhere near a hospital as her pills regulate her blood sugar and regulate her heart beat and regulate her mood issues.
Some days I feel as if she'll live to be 100 and I don't know if I can take another 30 years of supporting her EMOTIONALLY! I wouldn't mind the bills if she in any way, shape or form appreciated me.
Instead, I am "fulfilling my duty as a child" and am subjected to her talking to me like a 10 year old on a daily basis, despite the redundant "boundaries" conversations.
She knows there is no where else for her to go but here, so she has no filter. Ugh.. just venting.. just venting.. some days it's unbearable knowing what you put up with and everything you sacrifice (privacy, living without constant judgment, criticizing parenting skills, etc, etc etc)...
Some people have great relationships with their parents and miss them so.. I cannot relate.
