This Week's Carenote - 07/10/12

I take care of my mother, who can be very demanding and verbally mean to me. She has admitted to my younger sister that she is indeed very selfish, but it does not change how her words and behaviors affect me. My sister has also informed me that if I get crabby with my mother in reaction, it could be construed as elderly abuse. Am I supposed to walk on pins and needles and just deal with her meanness? Or can I tell her how I feel crabby at times? Or even just say, "I'm sick and tired of being treated this way when I am trying to help you"? I honestly do so much for her.

Sandy
