Hello ladies and gentlemen,
I am so fed up of my mum not listening to me in most cases. I have been caring for my mum for about 13 years now, only in the recent years she has been getting worse. I’m 27 yes old now.
I have been trying to advise her on how to help herself as well as me helping her. She has sciatica now and she is overweight and as I have sciatica myself I have been trying to advise her to move into her bed and put her leg up on a leg riser. But, she doesn’t listen and now she’s in pain! I gave her her hot water bottle and she said that was helpful but still painful.
My mum used to be an alcoholic and now she is not aloud to drink alcohol as that will kill her.
I have tried to be there for my mum but it does feel so exhausting having to look after her as well as myself.
Any opinions or advice would be so helpful,
