I am a 46 yr. old single parent. Mother of four and grandmother of four. Three of my kids have families and lives of their own, I have a 14yr. old left to raise. We are living with my mom, who tech. is my grandmother but she raised me. I have a full time job, care for her nd my son. I feel I am doing the best I can, but is never enough.She is the most hateful ,mean selfish person anymore it brings my son and myself to tears. There are three other natural daughters, one being my bio-logical mother, but two live away the othe is onky about 45 min. away. It had been decided yeas ago that i would be the one who took care of mom.You know the crazy part even though she is 85 yrs. old, health wise she isn't too bad. But yes dad spoiled her. His health ws terrile from as longs I can remeber but he took care of her. So now my son and I are here to do what dad did fo her. Take care the maintaince on the home, cut grass, you know normal things. She doesn't like to drive so I take my days off to drive her where ever. The only time she is nice to my son or I is when I take her some place or do something she wants. when I get a chance to see my kids or grandkids she gets so jealous and snobby. I need direction, I am so depressed. My son has good grades but he gets so angry at her and then he cries because she hurts him so bad. It is so hard to function on a daily basis. I ty to talking with other family memebers, they try to be comforting but it just doesn't help. pls. anyone out there, talk to me.

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? 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...
