I am a stay at home mom of 3. I recently moved into my mothers house to help take care if her she has med problems out the wazu! Anyway i have diareha of the mouth i think it i say it and it ususally gets me into trouble. Well i have been trying to calm my mouth down. Sometimes feel now that i am going to explode and i end up breking out in hives. Partly because i like everything on a scheduale i even time how long it will take me to clean each room! i feel like monk LOL! Now i am trying to find an oulet for my frustration because living with an ill mother nothing seems to be a scheduale. What is your outlet!!!

oh hon, I do feel for you. I recently took care of my mom daily for months. I didn't live with her but it was a tough adjustment at first. I got up each day and got my daughter off to school and showered and ran to my mom's for the day and then went into work for 2nd shift. On my nights off from work, I had my daughter and errands and household to take care of plus a boyfriend and friends and 3 other daughters wanting my time. it was overwhelming. Mom was not always the easiest person to be with and I understand bursting at the mouth. I think the biggest thing that helped me thru it all was that I just came to accept that this is what my life was meant to be at this time and that's how it was. I got used to it all. I did the best I could and set priorities. mom passed last week and I am so glad that I had that time with her. We probably bonded during that time more than we had all my life. I know it is hard but i think it would help if you just changed your outlook. What you are doing is something that is very very hard but you will be so glad in the end that you did it. hang in there and keep your chin up!
