Helpless

Today, I have to cook for her if I don’t want her to live on sweets, remind her to actually eat her food before it goes bad, then clean and put away her dishes. When I ask her to help, she complains that she "can never do it right anyway." My teenage daughter? No, my mom, age 62. FML

Unless she's got a disability that's causing this behavior, like Alzheimer's or dementia, why do you care so much how a grown woman lives her life? Just because she raised you doesn't mean you have to take care of her as she ages. Yes it's nice to do and sure you love her, but she was adult enough for years to take care of you, supposedly, so why can't she take care of herself?

You're obviously going way out of your way, and it's affecting you greatly. Some people just don't deserve it. If she's a mentally healthy 60 year old, she's taking advantage of you.
