I have had to be in contact with my mother recently. Long story but I am the one person in the family who cares for my grandmother, though my father is the POA. Unfortunately, my father does nothing, so any time I need to discuss my grandmother's care, I have to talk to her. I am actually shocked by how unsettling it has been for me. I know who she is and what to expect too.
Every word I speak, I know will be used against me in the future, even though she has no power over me. She already tried to start drama a few weeks ago. My uncle (another do nothing son) was in town and they all met up for lunch. In the middle of a restaurant, she had a meltdown because he mentioned my name. In public. I wasn't even there, it was literally just the mention of my name.
I know this is temporary, but fighting with her for the best interest of my grandmother means I have to be in contact with her. I will be glad when my grandmother is moved into assisted living and all her belongings are taken care of so I will no longer be accused of stealing money, jewelry or anything else.
I don't need advice, I am just hoping that putting it out in the universe will let my brain go of it some and remind myself that it is temporary and in the best interest of my grandmother.
