My Mom's depression is awful

Close to 9 years sober and I'm plum depressed about my Mom.

Digging in the past, telling me stories about my long-deceased Dad which make me hate him.

I need to set some boundaries and detach with love.

She's 80 years old and it makes me so sad she's in this state at this point in her life.

Welcome back Blinky - you posted in our Chat admin forum which is not the actual chat room, so I moved your post here for the most response.

I'm sorry to hear about your situation and your mom.

I had to detach from my parents for a while and work on my boundaries.

Have to thought about how you might do that?

I had similar problems with my elderly mom. She constantly reminded me of my dad divorcing her all those years ago. I understood that a lot of her complaining was due to dementia, so I just ignored it.

I hope you can work out a solution to the problems with your mom.
