My elderly mom is driving me nuts. She feels sick, nauseous and has a tooth ache plus a bit of depression (I think. Because she says ‘I wish I hadn’t lived so long and ‘I want to die) though that could just be because she’s feeling so sick from whatever is wrong with her. I don’t think she’s suicidal I think she’s just feeling very miserable and is trying to express that but it’s coming out in a very distressing manner. She’s afraid of going to the dentist or anywhere else cuz she’s afraid of covid and hasn’t got her shots yet cuz she feels too sick to.
She keeps going ‘Jesus Jesus Jesus’ with an occasional ‘Jesus help me’ and keeps saying to me ‘I’m sick I’m sick’ and ‘I don’t know what to do’ ‘what do I do’.
Does anyone know a mantra or anything I can say over her to help her feel better?
She does that Jesus Jesus Jesus thing almost constantly (at least she does when I’m around). It’s annoying me driving me crazy and making me wanna (you can probably guess what it’s making me wanna do).
She wants me to miss work but I don’t know how to help her and honestly I don’t wanna stay hone with her cuz at least at work I’m away from her incessant Jesus Jesus Jesus that she prayers out loud.
Mantra? Or anything?
I keep telling her she should go to a dentist but she keeps insisting she’s too sick to and doesn’t feel like it she keeps saying ‘I can’t I can’t’.
I’m losing my patience and coming to the end of my wits end with her. I keep getting thought of trying to do something to some sense into her.
Edit add: now she’s saying she’s ok for me to goto work so I’m probably going. BUT I still need something for when I get home after BECAUSE she’s driving me nuts. So please please please suggestions?
