Re: Dear ladies, I need a sympathetic ear.......

I do remember when we were moving Mom and Dad to AL. Mom had "run the sitter off" and was so proud of herself. She kept telling the story of "telling her to leave". In fact she hit the sitter. At the same time Mom was railing about the necessity of the move because of what Dad did or didn't do. She was truly upsetting my dad. It was heartbreaking for him. I finally had enough and said so. Every time Mom would start on either subject I would say.... ENOUGH MOM, STOP! It was not long before she stopped talking about either subject.... in my presence. Other times it has not worked as well but it's definitely worth a try....

Love, deb
