My mother keeps calling!

Now that might just sound like whining unless you've read my previous entries. She has alzheimers and is in a nursing home. Unless you have elderly relatives in MD nursing homes, you might not know this but (apparently) under MD law, they are not permitted to take phones away even in this situation.

This has been going on for a year and I think I'm going to have to get call blocking, that or set up a second line just so that there's one line for her to call me on, and one line for everybody else.

She's called my five times today, and I only got 2 hours sleep. I was grumpy yesterday, I'm like shocky today.

Hey maybe I can be sneezey tomorrow? :-)

scenario one: your mother calls tomorrow, and you answer the phone in a thick mexican accent. say "no he isn't here, and he isn't coming back, because if he does he knows i'll rip out his liver and eat it."
scenario two: put her on speaker phone while continuing to have sex.
scenario three: put her on speaker phone while continuing to have sex with livestock.
just tossin' out some suggestions. not saying that it will help, but damn would it be funny. and yes my mother hates me

You brought back my favorite pic of you! Yaaay, this is def your best, but now I want to see more!

Scenario 1) Thought about it
Scenario 2) Way too much stress in my mother's voice to "actually" maintain an erection, but I know that's not what you meant. Make her feel embarrassed.
Scenario 3) See scenario 2. I could get a corny porn video and get the same effect. :-)

Some moms just naturally hate all green haired girls. Me? Well, my first romantic fantasies were about women with green hair, (albiet on distant planets) so I am biased. I'd have to recommend you put in a requistion with Mars Space Command for a "Mind Control Device" and set it to "green"

But, if that's the case, and if you ask me (and you haven't) that's *her* problem, but having a mom who hates you can become your problem.

My mom doesn't hate me or my sister; she mostly sounds frustrated with her situation and wants our help. But we can't help her, at least not the way she wants us to.

Re: Thanks

When did you shave your head?
That's an awful situation; I'm sorry to hear it. If her memory's going, her sense of time and propriety suffer. Perhaps simply turning off the ringer when you wish to sleep? Or use the answering machine to screen calls and let people know they'll need to talk to it if they want you to pick up.

Re: Thanks

Shave my head? What gave you that idea?

It was pretty recent actually. You don't seem to be saying if you like it or not.

Sometimes, I forget to take the phone out of the room, or as in this case, sometimes I am expecting a really important call I cannot afford to miss.

Anyway thanks for (finally) taking a look around my journal.
