yesterday for the first time in my life I took my mom to the clinic. She's been complaining of muscle pain at her left leg. Me - very worried coz my mom seldom sick. For those who didnt know , my mom is the only lady in the family. I have 4 siblings , all boys. So, for the past 29 years, my mom has been the superwomen in the family. She is the backbone of the family. Day in, day out taking care of her beloved 5 kids.
After the check up at the clinic, the doctor said nothing serious - just muscle strained and overworked. I felt really bad. Wish I could help her out on the daily basis. But one thing about my mom - she wants to do everything by her own. Even if I tried to help , she will carefully supervised me and should I do anything wrong , she'll just do it again. Therefore , it's pretty much helpless also.
I talked to my brother about hiring a domestic helper at the house. But we both know it wont do any good coz the same reason I wrote above. She wants the house to be in her order. It's very hard to get someone else to take care of the household things.
But, should her condition getting worse , I'll force her to hire a domestic helper - even thou it's against her own will. Sigh.....
