My mum is too dependent on me

I'm still waiting for her care package to arrive and I've been waiting for over three months now. She wants me at the back of her all the time. I have had to deal with her outburst for several years now. I told the social worker she has become too dependant on me and it is too much.

I feel I need a really long rest now. Maybe a permanent break from dealing with her behaviour. She even wakes me up in the morning when I want to sleep. She is always going on telling me things and I tend to get fed up. She complains about her back pain and sometimes shouting and thinks I have been shouting. The nurses are planning to get her into respite so I can have a break.

If you are living with your mother @Nightshade01 it will be difficult to get some space. If her behaviour is affecting you so badly perhaps your doctor could hurry help along for you.
