My mother lives in Arizona, I live in Florida. She is very sick, they are still trying to figure out what is wrong. They think lyme disease, babesiosis, thyroid, blood pressure, cholesterol, incontinence, brain lesions, anemia, arthritis, athsma, the list goes on. She is a single 56 year old woman. She has friends, but she calls me all the time "freaking out" with her problems. I do not know how to respond to her. I am 26, married with a 15 month old, 5 months pregnant, with an extremely supportive husband. My family is not at all supportive, they think my mother is a lunatic. She definitely has her issues. She calls me 2-3 times a day at all hours. She is upset if I don't pick up the phone or stay on with her for at least 20 minutes. What do I say when she tells me she can't go on, she is in so much pain etc. She is usually crying. How do I answer her?
