    This morning, my Dad was complaining about his difficult night sleeping. And for needs or wishes that are unfulfilled in one relationship, hopefully, we can find fulfillment through other relationships in our lives. I know I'll never change her and I'm running out of patience. Everytime I even think of going to see her my stomach gets in nots and I become a nervous wreck, I have to play the radio loud in the car just to calm down and try not to think of what is about to happen. I am reluctant to suggest that you recommend therapy to and for her because I am concerned that this will backfire and she will get angry with you. My mother, in particular, is a very negative woman whose first reaction to anything is mockery or contempt.

    I want to stress that neither Shmueli nor I knows if your mother is depressed, but it's a possibility. “When you're angry, you don't have to.Thanks for letting me 'let go' of this.

    No matter what we are talking about, she can find something to zero in on that is gloomy, or something bad that might happen, or someone else.It may not be what some shrink would suggest to do, but it's enough of a jolt to stop the insanity for the time being ha.

    I'm not sure when or where or who it happened to first but it's gotten to the point where I've become depressed and angry whenever I talk to her.Dear Dr.

    1. Your Mom Dismisses Your Negative Feelings · 2. Your Mother Thinks That You're Responsible For Her Happiness · 3. Your Mother Doesn't Respect.I say this as a person who has listened to others who have had a pattern of negative conversation, and as a person who has been guilty of it myself at times.

    I always had such a deep desire to connect with my mom and share my life with her, but after sharing I usually have to spend so much time coping.I'm a senior care specialist trained to match you with the care option that is best for you.

    I am an only child, my mother is divorced, lives by herself and hardly has pity i try to feel for her because i actually think she's quite depressed.That is why shows like "Everyone loves Raymond" are so popular, because we can all relate to the friggin dysfunctional family we all have on some level.

    From your experience with your own parents, do you then keep the conversation only about the basic things?

    I strive to be respectful and helpful, but I maintain a healthy boundary because experience tells me that when I am more open and friendly with him, we will invariably end up hurting one another.

    I have realized that because she is not working on her own wounds, she will not be able to understand my increasing inner freedom and desire to act in accordance to my heart voice.

    It's a sexist myth that all mothers must be so self-sacrificing and egoless that they no longer care about their own interests, opinions, or achievements after having kids.

    As you wrote, you can't ask your mom to avoid talking about things that bring you down because this causes her to feel rejected.

    You can just be really angry and criticise others, and it can be all their fault.

    If you can leave for a time at least once a month-maybe it is time for placement-it sounds like it she may still complain but it will not be in your house-why ruin your health and peace of mind-they will use her assests for medicaide and how much more unhappy will she be.
