I can't stand my elderly mother

(4 Posts)

She had a stroke about 6 years ago and this has left her disabled, bitter and angry.
She was unkind to my father during his illness.
She is cruel emotionally to myself and my children.
She is loaded and gifts huge chunks of cash to my brothers and other grandchildren in the family but doesn't even buy my kids a birthday or christmas present.
She is cruel and says unkind things, selfish and rude.
She lives about 10 minutes away and because of her disability my husband says we must visit and help her. I don't want to. I honestly wish she would just die.

Sympathies. I don't like my mum either. She was a rubbish mother and has been the bane of my life. Let your brothers take responsibility for sorting out care. Even if they don't live near they can hire carers.

Or your mum could use her wealth to get in carers or go into a home?

Generally, people reap what they sow.
Unless you have reason to believe her behaviour is some kind of dementia, I'd stop bothering. And you should not carry the entire burden of supporting her.
