Another area I have been learning coping and managing. My mother is not a happy old woman. Quite the opposite. She has developed paranoia’s about all sorts of things and people. She has not learned to relinquish control in areas where it is most needed; she has not developed trust; she is becoming bitter and nasty. Today I could see very clearly the arc of her madness going way back in behaviors that troubled all the members of her family. She complains so much that people don’t like to be around her. I alone spend hours and hours with her, loving and supporting her the best I can. But I have to admit I am looking forward to getting away!
