VEE: It is difficult to live with an ailing parent. I struggle with thoughts that Ive put my life on hold for someone who doesnt even care. I live with someone who thinks they own everything even though I do pay my way. Part of the problem is my mom doesnt fully accept whats wrong with her and tries to push her limits. She also, like all parents I suspect, never stops thinking of me as a little kid. There are a few things she is fully able to help me with but ignores the fact that I could really use her help or even the offer of help. I try to see things from her view however sometimes I have no clue what she is thinking and it can be very frustrating and painful.
We dont pick our cross, we carry the one we are given.
