Dear Mom and Me,
I live in a lovely apartment condo. I have become friendly with a nice widow on the floor below and we have lots of fun together, going out to concerts, dinner and other fun activities. Her apartment always seems to be piled high with delivery boxes, unopened boxes and half opened boxes in the living room. She gets more mail than anyone else in the building and always dresses in top style. I now find she spends many hours watching T. V. infomercials in the wee hours of the morning and is constantly ordering from the hundreds of catalogues she receives. This behavior seems like an addiction to me, how can I help her?
I just moved my mother into Carolina House and feel so guilty about moving her. I know it was the right decision but I can not seem to get past feeling bad about the move. do other adult children feel the same way?
