My mother! For the past couple of years we've had a family meet up over Easter but whenever she's looking forward to something she can talk about nothing else. She'll interupt phone conversations so she can talk about the meet up, she'll call at 11pm to talk about the meet up, it's driving me nuts!
Anyway..... Ds and I were going to stay with my aunt who lives very close to my mother as there's no space for us in my mother's house (she lives with my brother, she's housebound and waiting for a hip replacement etc). My aunt sadly died this week so we can't do that. Now my mother wants ds to sleep in my brother's room, my brother to sleep on the sofa and for me to sleep with her. She goes to bed at 7:30 and snores quite badly, she also tends to talk in her sleep and is up at 5am to take medication. I can't sleep in her bed with her, I have MS (she doesn't know) so get soooo knackered if I've not slept well. AIBU to stay in a hotel with DS? She's said she's soo looking forward to ds and I staying with her.

How have you managed to keep the MS from her? Do you not want to tell her?

If she goes to bed so early then it's strange that she thinks it's a good idea for you to stay with her. Will you have to stay downstairs and be quiet until your bedtime?

She fusses and worries a lot. She was in the hospital herself when I was diagnosed so I thought it best to keep quiet. My sister and brother know though. She's in a bungalow and her room is next to the living room. Ds is usually quiet, I get cramp sometimes during the night though and I don't want to kick her leg. She'll be awake throughout the night with the pain also.

Would you consider telling her about your MS?

I think the fact that she goes to bed so early is a good enough reason for you to use not to stay there. If you explain that you don't want to wake her and that you and ds work to totally different times then her so you will stay in a B&B, how do you think she would take that?
