Let me tell you a story about that...
It's bullpoo.

Here is a story from 10 years ago. This might take a while. Get comfy.

Sonia was 19. She met a guy who seemed to be nice (and incredibly hot, I will not lie). As these things go, he ended being a dippoo. The intricacies of this particular story doesn't matter, lets just say that I was heartbroken.

It was a very sad time in my life, not only because of this guy, but because nothing was going the way I intended it to go. Things at university weren't going well, my relationship with my parents was at it's worst, I was all around very, very unhappy.

At the time, I was doing a sort of internship at a vet clinic where my pets had been taken care of when I was a child. And there was this woman who was the secretary. She was really nice, we talked a lot.

Because I was not getting along with my mom, I couldn't talk to her about all this heartache I was going through (OK, my mom is also a very intense person, who is very set in her ways, and hers is the only way sometimes. And sometimes all you need, as someone who is very, very sad, is a mother that commiserates and tells you that your situation sucks, and that's all, because you yourself need to figure out what is going on, how you feel, what you gonna do).
This woman was this person to me. I went there crying, she would console me.
She became like a substitute mother to me for a very long time.

For different reasons, we fell out of touch, until she contacted me a few years later, to ask me if I would be a witness in a hearing against the vet we had worked for.
She had suffered a series of heart problems (pre-heart attack, a heart attack, heart infarct and sudden death (not sure if this is how it is said in English, I am translating from Spanish)). As a result, she was left with less than 40% of a functioning heart.
The employer had psychologically harassed her into quitting, since she was illegally employed there, and he didn't want her dying in his clinic. Hence the lawsuit.

Anyways, we reconnected and she told me that her daughter, whom she had been living with, because she took care of her grandchildren when Daughter was at work, was being a bitch to her.

Because of her condition, she was feeling very tired, and nobody would take her as an employee. So she was just sitting at home, doing house chores, which her daughter didn't like.
It got to the point where Daughter wouldn't feed her own mother. I had to bring her food from my house, so she wouldn't waste away.
I also then left for Australia, so we would talked over WhatsApp every once in a while.
And now, to the present. where Daughter has kicked her out, she moved in with Son1, who now is telling her she is a pain in his ass, and that he will leave and leave her on her own (she is terrified of this, as her condition has worsened over the years and she is afraid something will happen to her while alone), Son2 just neglects her emotionally, throws a bit of money at her to make himself feel at peace...

It is terrible hearing someone you love just crying, desperate to find a way out of a pooty situation.

I get that things might not be 100% like she says they are, but to her they are and she is super upset and lonely. That can not be good for her heart either.

I don't know how to help her. I can't give her money because I really don't have any (haven't worked in 6 months, and have eaten through most of my savings) and I also know that Son1 will take it from her, because the economical situation in Argentina is terrible and he is as broke as she is.

So, yeah. Your children can end up being assholes when you need them the most.

I did not get along with my mother for a very long time, but I think that even then, I would try to somehow take care of her if she were in such a vulnerable situation. Where the drat is human decency in all this???

It frustrates me and makes me angry and there isn't much I can do right now, other than listen to her.

And I just needed to vent for a bit.

That's rough. The listening from far away, the not knowing what's going on, feeling like you're in a position where you're unable to help as much as her kids could, all of it. You're really kind for staying in touch and being a supportive and listening ear to her. Hopefully she made a couple of friends like you during her career who can also be there with her.
There's a scary lack of kindness in this world.

I wish I could say she has anyone left, but people do have a tendency of dissapearing when things get rough.
I wish I could do something more proactively
