Ok so I’m overwhelmed, as many of you may know I suffer from medical conditions that limit my normal everyday activities. One that I never thought they would interfere with is my ability to keep a clean, neat & tidy home. Along with my other issues I also suffer from OCD so how could that happen right? OCD is obsessive compulsive disorder, common misconception is that everything around us is always perfect. On the contrary, over the last few years my conditions took a turn and spiraled out of control. When I wasn’t hospitalized I was bedridden, the mess does go on though. Unable to organize or clean instead I watched the untidy mess build up around me and struggled instead with worsening of my anxiety. Although unable to physically take care of things I still obsessed over it all. Unfortunately and fortunately (for them) I suppose lol my daughters do not suffer from OCD so they are ok with it all. They used to be so helpful, growing up they had their chore charts and eventually just knew what to do and took care of it. It was a good beginning teaching them values and responsibilities. As they got older however they suddenly forgot how to do basically everything. Suddenly I’m missing flatware, dinnerware, Tupperware, cookware any type of “ware” they took the easy way out and either tossed or hid it! Whaaat? I know tell me about it, it drives me crazy and I wonder 1 where is my stuff and 2 what the hell is wrong with them?? Who does that? Well let me tell you, entitled BRATS that’s who. They’re older, all I started expecting of them now is to just keep their rooms clean. When I say their rooms I mean our rooms we let them use. Our girls are now 20, 18 & 14 we’ve dedicated our lives to them and their well being and happiness but we find out now that they feel they’ve “done their time”. (the “adults” that is) Uhh 🙄 oh boy. Ok ladies, if this is prison to you and helping your disabled mom is so difficult well then hey, your prison terms have ended so you are FREE! Ohh you don’t mean it in “that way” ha of course you don’t. Free room & board, free food, transport etc. right why would you mean it “that way”? Ha so I’m a mom here to say “I am over it”! Over being disrespected and made to feel less than. I literally “DID MY TIME” you bratty adult children. Get your acts together because things won’t continue on this path. I’ve hired people to clean my home, yup with 3 healthy able bodied daughters too I had no choice. This is my life. They will not be booted, they will have access to their rooms and that’s it. I will not pick up after them or pay to either. If you can relate to this, I’m so sorry. If you can’t, hang on tight and express your expectations to your children as it will be in their best interest to not only learn values & responsibilities but to continue them through life. Don’t let your kids walk on you, it hurts.
