My Mother is Driving Me Crazy
Published by TANYUJIE | Monday, October 29, 2012 12:19 AM
What can I say? I think the title speaks for itself. In addition to my caregiving duties I have just recently returned from 2 and a half years of living in China. I have spent a total of 15 years in that country. So I'm dealing with reverse culture shock as well as the stress of having to care for my Dad. Hence the poem.
