I have been living with my Mom since April 2014. My Mom has short-term memory loss. And the last few months it has gotten worse.

My Mom and I don't have a really great relationship. I am the oldest child of 2 and the one who is not married, no job (retired) so the job fell to me. And unfortunately, that is how it felt these last few months as a job or prison I couldn't escape.couldn't seem to get away for breaks. I was getting really hateful with my Mom. I would tell her something not to do and turn around and she was doing it again. I saw the monster I was becoming and knew I had to do something to stop this problem or I would be lost. So I started researching homes for Seniors in our area.
To shorten my story, last night I put my Mom in a home. I called today and she is doing good. I am not visiting for a while because she will expect me to bring her home. I wanted all you to know this about me to explain my melt done about the stats I had.

I am sorry for all the troubles. I will try to learn about the stats and be a better teammate and leader.

    Try not to let it all get to you. Start a gratitude journal. Put down 5 to 10 things on it. Small things that make you smile. Examples: the sunshine, a good tv show, a preety pillow etc. what you focus on will grow. Mom will be on it one day♥️
