My mom is in a nursing home because she is morbidly obese and can no longer move under her own power. She has given up on life yet still wants people to cater to her. I have been trying to go see her on weekends when I can but now she is mad at me becasue I "sic'd" my sister on her that she doesn't get along with. I only called this sister because she is a nurse and can understand the medical side of things. A PA ordered sometests for my mom which she was refusing. The PA only wants to help make her quality of life better but all she can say is just let me have a stroke and die. I can't cope anymore and I don't know what to do. It is starting to affect my family. I have been on antidepressents for some time, even before this, and as a result of all this sought out additional treatment, for which additional meds were prescribed. Things had been going fairly well until this latest episode and I am now at my wits end. I feel this situation will never resolve itself. I don't wish her to die but I don't think I can take this for the rest of her life. She is only 68 and this could go on for many more years to come. Nothing anyone does for her seems to be right and she does nothing to try to make it better for herself. My sister says I have to do what I have to do to take care of me but I'm afraid of the potential outcome with my mom if I do this. Please Help, I'm very lost and very sad about all of this.

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
