My mom is living with me and i'm going through a VERY tough time. I found out Christmas Day that my husband has a mistress so i kicked him out. Now i am dealing with him, money problems and my mom. If she is not the center of attention she throws tantrums. She actually apologized to me for my STBX's affair, like she had something to do with it. Everytime i'm upset or trying to deal with my stuff she makes it about her. She isn't happy unless we are giving her our attention( i have 2 girls 15&10). She doesn't care what kind just everything HAS to be about her. Yesterday she started saying she would be better off dead, that she wants to die. Not suicide but a Natural death. Besides the alzheimers and severe depression she is healthy. If you say something that she doesn't like she goes into like a catonic state where she stares off in space doesn't make a sound and sometimes she might shake. She is so totally faking. I am at my wits end and don't know how much more i can take. At a time when i really need my mom's help she isn't here. I really just want to put her in assisted living or something but she isn't that far. She is still in the early stages. She's only 56. I don't know how i am going to manage on my own for the nest 10-30 yrs. The rest of my family is on the west coast so i don't get any relief. I could really use some advice.
