I am so happy this site is here now! I need suggestions....I work full time. My mother can get around the house by herself with a walker. The only thing I need to do is prepare meals and help her change her bed sheets. Mom doesn't go out of the house. She does get on the computer, read news and play solitaire. Basically she's a nice person. Problem: I don't have good feelings towards her & she knows it. I TRY. But I can't fake it. How can I have my space and time and not feel guilty. In the morning I am getting ready for work. Mom comes to the kitchen about 6:30 am. If I'm in the room...she assumes it's open territory and she wants to talk about deep things. She can't hear some of the words I say so when I talk I have to be right up to her. How can I have a peaceful morning --just stay out of the kitchen, not acknowledge she is "there" and just leave without saying goodbye (then I'll really feel guilty!!)

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
