So confused

by Guppy

Hi. I'm 58. My mom is 90. She has no health issues, except that she used to fall before her walker. She's sharp as a tack.

I lost my job this month. I was living with mom before then. Now I've started to notice how skinny she is and that she doesn't eat breakfast until 2pm, and she wasn't eating right. She can have no dairy. So I've been cooking her 3 meals a day and she's gained 4 pounds.

My big sister does not seem enthusiastic. I'm trying to find a work at home job or a government stipend so I can continue to stay home with her.

Me and mom have always been close and we giggle and all, and sometimes I feel like I'm getting old here so I'm not sure what the right thing to do is?
