I don’t know how to deal with my schizoeffective mother who suffers from delusions. She is very impulsive with shopping. I have paperwork filled out but I haven’t been to court yet receive legal guardianship. She is living in my house. When I tell her that her impulsive shopping and hoarding habits are affecting my house. That we now have tons of groceries now that we don’t need to go to eat every single day. Mom throws a fit saying we have no right to deprive her of whatever she wants. I told mom she has already filled one fridge an entire shelf her food is starting to go into a storage fridge. She said she gets what she wants. She don’t care.
My husband Talan wanted to carry his gun. I told him I don’t think that’s a good idea. My husband won’t listen to me. He wanted to go to the gun shop I told him with mom’s psychological background it isn’t a good idea once again I was ignored. My mother caught me talking to my husband and impulsively used her card to buy a ring from the gun shop for over $200. I told her I am going to be audited for her behavior. My mom rolled her eyes saying it’s her money she does what she wants. We tried to tell her we are responsible for her impulses. She said she doesn’t care it’s her money she does what she wants. I told her if we don’t control those impulses the courts will take her money and hire a payee to take care of her needs. She once again rolled her eyes saying she has her rights till court she does what she wants. I am tempted to call the courts and move up her case to shut her up.
While we were at the Dollar Tree yesterday my mom bragged she owned her own business and I was on her payroll. She told them she is so important that I serve her and carry her money. I quit my job to care for a damn schizoeffective women. I don’t get paid! She swore my friends who help me clean part of her house as a favor to me that are on her pay roll. I told mom she better pay them more if she is that level of delusions and grandiose behavior. My mom was furious when I told the people she was bragging to that I am her caregiver and that she recently got out of the hospital. Mom screamed I am not allowed to humiliate her again. Quit lying I won’t have to humble you.
My mom is in the process of falling asleep for one of her many naps. I hear my husband in the next room preparing us a late lunch. She apparently just woke up told me she going call attorney general to prove she is competent so she can move back into her own house..I wonder if mom forget how damn gross her house currently is. She moved in with me because it was either be with me or she would be placed in a group home. I tried to convince her to get her house professionally cleaned but she fears someone will rob her house. She keeps swearing someone took her brand new computer but as messy as her house is. How would anyone know? She swears someone stole from her.. I highly doubt that. Nobody has been in her damn house.
I took mom to her house today. She sat on the swing outside her house while Talan and I walked her pets. I went inside the house fed her pets got them some water. I talked to mom about her teaching us to use her big industrial 360 mower so we can mow her grass. In some places the grass is just above my knees.
My husband Talan is in the next room cooking is chicken and cheesy rice. My mom is in the living room watching Longmire. I am in my bedroom petting my cat Harley Quinn and writing in my diary. Since mom is medicated she has been very kind to my pets. My cats often sleep on the bed in her room. I am glad mom enjoys her grand fur babies because God knows I am not in a hurry to have a child anytime soon. Since mom’s visit to the psych unit it’s like she’s a teenager and I am the adult it’s so strange.
