My mother-in-law has been living with us for the past 2 weeks in transition from being in an assisted living facility with her husband, to being newly widowed and being uprooted from her home in Houston and moving here in NC. She is a complainer, she has ALWAYS been a complainer, tonight she is complaining about her arm hurting from a tetinus shot she got Monday, but she didn't complain about it until tonight to the point that my husband finally broke down and get her a tylenol. She doesn't do anything but sleep and eat. Just now, I heard her say to my knight, "Ouch! oh, this chair, I must be sitting in it wrong and it's hurting my back.......oh, it's bad getting old, don't get old, doug, don't get old....'sigh'" This goes on every night and during the day when it's just the girls and I, she is much better and acts fairly normal. But, she "works" her son so obviously!!
AAUUGGHH! I need patience!! She has been this way for as long as I have known her, but at least I was able to get out and go to my own home!! How many walks in the neighborhood can one do?
