Another Vent!!!!

My mother keeps bitching about certain people and criticizing them - fine, but she keeps telling me about it over and over. Her own brother was the latest one. She told me more than once what his transgressions were. When I called her on it - then I'm being negative and criticizing HER!!! I either have to listen to her, or I'm told I'm the negative one. Arghhhhh!!!!!

I'm really trying to not blow up, but I have listened to so much sniping and infighting this week with everyone's emotions raw from my grandmother's death. And my mom's family didn't have to show up since it was my dad's mother, and maybe my uncle was a little insensitive - but does she have to tell me over and over that he was insensitive?

And I'm PMSing - so I right now I can understand why people go "postal"!!!

PS - Today is all about Mom - her tests and checkup and doctor's appointment and one more round of chemo - and I'm here with her - not anyone else, so - DON'T PISS ME OFF MOM! No one else is around to be your slave!

Are we related? Seems I have this conversation with my mom frequently...I haven't even begun to blog about her! I've enjoyed going back and reading some of your posts.

I bet all the stuff your mom is going through is making her crankier than usual. Then all the stress you are going through, makes her crankiness even harder to put up with. Darn! I wish I could give you a hug! Here it is anyway (virtual hug!) Hang in there!

Maggie, I'm so sorry to hear about your grandmother. And now, the stress with your mom--boy can I relate to stress with a mom, but that's a story for a later time! :)

What a week we've all been having!!I truly hope things ease up for you soon. Big ((hugs)) to you.

No sage advice from me.
Just hugs to you.
Sounds like you could use a couple.
