Hi All, I am still with my mom, two hours from home, sleeping on an uncomfortable bed, sitting in uncomfortable chairs, doing way more than I have energy for, and Mom calls my sister crying because I'm making her go too fast to clear out her stuff and move back down to my sister's in Texas.  I've already been with my Mom since March 9 and am trying to6 sad get her to be gone by the week after Easter.  I have put my life on hold and I am going nuts.  I also don't have anyone to talk to except by phone and I am with my Mom 24-7.  We have never gotten along very well, and I have chewed my tongue to bits so I don't say anything I shouldn't to her.  I just really don't know what I can do and my frustration is mounting incrementally.  I guess I am going to have to sit her down and talk to her about this, but that is a problem, because no one in my family ever talks to anyone else seriously.  I don't know what to do.  Any ideas?  Diane

You sound like your in a most stressful time right now. Hang in there, maybe in truth your mom doesn't really want to live with your sis. She appreciates you even though she doesn't express herself to you in a positive way.

Keep checkin' in here, maybe some of our chats can distract you for a bit. :-) And you can always relieve some of your stress here too.

This is a stressful time for you and for your mother.  When she really gets to you, just remember that you are one day closer to being back home.  This too shall pass.  Before you know it, your Mom will be living in Texas with your sister.
