Heavy sigh....I'm avoiding writing lately. My mind is in a swirl with my own health issues, holidays and my mother coming home from 2 months in rehab care for a broken hip. After all these years, the rest of the family finally sees what my sister and I lived with all of our lives. They keep saying it is old age or dementia. Not to me....this is the mother I have always known demanding, complaining, manipulative....yup a real piece of work. Finally, they have stopped making excuses for her. Mother accused my sister of plotting to prove she was incompetent. I cheered when my sister said that she looked at mother and told her, "You did that yourself." Nope don't need to do a thing for her to demonstrate how unstable she is. I feel sad.
