This is going to sound horrible to a lot of people, but I don't know what to do about my mom. She has let herself go so badly that a lot of times its embarassing to be with her. She is obese and doesn't take care of herself. I have tried to bring it up in suttle ways but its like she doesn't care, and doesn't understand. I even can't stand being around her when she eats, and I tell her that it drives me nuts the way she doesn't close her mouth and so loud, but she doesn't care to stop I guess. I'm sad because I love my mom and wish there is something I could do to help. I am sure it comes from depression but letting yourself go like this cannot help you feel any better about yourself.Answer Question

Maybe you can invite mom to work out with you? Get some mom and daughter bonding time and get healthy? Or sign up for some cooking classes to teach her how to cook healthier meals. Tell her how much you love her and how much it hurts you to think that she won't be around for very long because she's shortening her life.
