I have parents. Do you have them? If you do, you know what I am talking about. I have a mother. She is stubborn, onery, and pig-headed. I take care of her. She is unable to do much anymore. I refuse to let her go to a nursing home. She said she doesn't want to go to one either.

Tonight she is in a lot of pain. I gave her the medicine that her doctor told me to. It isn't helping. I followed all the instructions the doctor gave me when the medicine doesn't work. The last step is to go to the hospital. She refuses to go. She says she doesn't want to be kept overnight. I told her that the hospital has to abide by her wishes. If she is not in immediate need of hospitalization or needs to be observed overnight. they cannot keep her against her will. She still won't go! I give up. If I call and ambulance, she will refuse to go and they won't force her. It's called kidnapping.

Why do parents act like it will do them serious damage to go to the hospital? My dad is on his deathbed and refuses to see a doctor or go to a nursing home.

I am going to be mad for several hours tonight. then, like a good daughter, I will continue to take care of her. After all, her other children won't do it. The rest of the family is in California, Missouri, and Nevada.

That just leaves me.
