How do you get someone to cooperate with you when they want to still do thing themselves and they can't. Mom again this a.m. at 6 tried to get on the potty chair by herself and fell. Said she was trying to help me and let me sleep. Didn't help my herniated disk, bad knees, and legs much to have to lift her up and after breakfast I tried to talk to her and explain that I know she wants to do things on her own but she CAN'T and she's just making it harder on me when she falls and we have the problems. She seemed to understand but know by tomorrow she will have forgotten. I know I'm tired, frustrated, and with no help and no one to help me I've got to hold the feeling in until I'm away from her. I don't mind doing for her, if fact I wouldn't be anywhere else or doing anything else but with my disabilities with my back, hips, and legs if she doesn't cooperate I'm going to be back in the hospital and then she will have to go to the respite center in Alabama which she has refused to do so far but if I go in the hospital she's just going to have to go no matter what. Guess she'll be mad at me for months if that happens but have to do what is best for BOTH of us.
Thanks for listening to me "vent" and I appreciate any advice you can give.
Peace, Love, and Light
