My mom survived colorectal cancer surgery. She is 83. She is able to get around with a walker and cane, and she has a bag
My Dad lives with her. He is trying do hard to be helpful, but she is
rejecting his every effort, and closing him out. He is losing his ability
to maintain his compassion. She yells at him and us very mean
This is not her normal demeanor. She is having troubles with the
bag, but refuses any assistance.
She feels bad after she is mean, but then it just continues
She is hard of hearing. She is in NY and I, her daughter am in CA
I can only communicate with her via email and with my dad on the phone
She is frustrated and angry. He is hurt and it is turning to anger
I am going to visit to try to help next week
I need advice. I don't know how to deal with this
My relationship with my mom is great. I can say anything to her, and she
will listen...but she has been pretty non communicative since
My relationship with my dad is good, but he is not as easy
to approach ideas about emotion, etc.
