This is terrific! P sounds like a dream, if maybe a little authoritative!

I can completely relate to Jeff describing how he once felt burdened by your mom’s needs and now he feels rejected. I think that is a classic caregiving emotional rollercoaster, and it’s unexpected to encounter feelings of sadness about not being needed as much. Hopefully he will adjust and recognize the lowered burden as a benefit to him – in my experience, this transition made the time I spent with my mom more enjoyable and less fraught with my anxieties or exhaustion.

Happy belated birthdays to you and to Kacey! 🙂
