It seems like all my life I have been taking care of her or trying to avoid her. I love my mom very much, but I can't live my life the way I want to because she demands so much of my time.
Even though she has a nursing degree, she still has those times when she thinks that she can live a normal life with out her meds, and of course, that is when all hell breaks loose and I have to come along and pick up the pieces. Sometimes I feel like she is just being selfish and she acts out to get the focus on her. In fact, I am more inclined to believe that than anything. I am so tired. I just wish I could go to her for support sometimes.
