Won't be able to convince him. He thinks he is "God's gift to" my mom. I know he has underlying anger problems, but refuses to face them.
Well, with that said, and your "disappointing" answers, simply because I wanted him out of the house, I greatly appreciate your time.
Thank you! I will make it fly if I need to do so in order for my mom to feel safe in her own home. Whatever happened to emotional abuse, which I feel it is? Guess with your answers, that don't cut it these days. It's not enough for her to be afraid, crying and shaking each time he screams at her, having her beg for her own cigarettes, which a doctor just told me will be better for her only because of the withdrawal symptoms at this time in her life. How a son can literally control his mother and be an asshole to a dieing mother and get away with it is amazing. Sorry, but from what I read with your answers, the law sucks! Yet, I know you didn't create it and I'm glad you are explaining it to me.
God Bless you for that!
