What can we do?

My mom only has social security. We can't afford to pay the thousands a month it would take to put her in assisted living.


I guess she'll have to live with us indefinitely?

We're all miserable, her included. I think she might do better in an environment with people her age.She just sits here for hours and hours complaining she has nothing to do.

I have made suggestion after suggestion but she refuses them all and continues to complain.

My house is not the same anymore. I want to run away from home.

I'm sorry. I just can't help how I feel. I don't have a moment to myself. I feel like I have a conjoined twin. |

I want her out of my house.

I have the same problem you do with my mom. She only has SS. She was going to the senior center for lunch, but she quit. She has lifeline so I go to town for a few hours with my husband each week. I don't worry anymore, I just go. I want to run away forever!
