My mother made some digs about the mess at the side of my cooker today and its really annoyed me.
Cleaning has not been a priority for the last 6 weeks due to dps life limiting cancer diagnosis and surgery and the 2x daily hospital visits; going to said mums every day to help out with dad (alzheimers), doing their ironing as well as my own; running around for blasted school uniforms, paying bills etc.
Im bloody knackered mentally, emotionally and physically. Im barely coping with juggling all of it but I feel crap now that im not doing the bloody housework as often as I should!!!

My mum is so lovely but this comment has really fucked me off.

And its a bloody bonus if I get 4 hours sleep a bloody night!!!
Apparently though I should go to bed earlier.... yeah right because its so easy to switch off and sleep...

Presumably you've thought of a 100 comments to make but the moment has now passed confused

I'm sorry life has dealt you such a rotten hand at the moment. It sounds utterly shit. Can you back off from helping at your mums or was her comment just a cack-handed attempt to reciprocate some of your support? Ie Did she clean it or just make smart arse comments?

I cleaned it...
I cant afford not to help at mums as I get paid 16 hours as dads personal assistant ( even though ive always been there longer)
Mums generally great but I am barely managing to keep going and that comment she made didnt help...

I cant say anything to her. She has her own problems with my dad. She really is lovely but I think she thinks im strong and im managing... I just dont think she gets how badly im managing (im not at all)
