My mother thinks I’m mean to her on the phone. She no longer wants to talk to me. I don’t think I’m being mean. I’m firm with her. I encourage her to do her best in rehab but will call her out when she’s plays the victim card. My mother wants me to feel sorry for her but I refuse to pity her. I’ve become the mean son.
There’s a family conference with the care facility on Tuesday. The rehab center wants to discharge my mother. Either she’s not improving or there are no more care options. There’s a good chance my mother will end up in a nursing home which is one thing she feared. She also fears dying which may come sooner than later.
