Kelly, just an idea, but because your mom's situation is "temporary", it may be better to think to yourself "it will all be over soon", and when it is, then maybe you can confront your being taken advantage of? Maybe wait til then? You must be the "strong" one in the family. Keep up the good work! Let us know? Leora
