Running on empty

You cannot pour from an empty cup.

But how can you take care of yourself in an environment that is not conducive? Twice in a space of two weeks, I have had people barge into my bedroom and completely disregard my boundaries.
I blame the people who open the front door of the house to them as well.
Last week, our gardener decided to hire herself a helper and wanted to bring this stranger into my bedroom and introduce her… Covid aside, whatever would make a human being think that it’s ok to come into my bedroom and invite a stranger to come in as well.

The level of disrespect is astounding.
I am not a people’s person, similarly my mother is also not so friendly. I take it, it’s her disability that gives people the freedom to do these things. Or could it be the fact that Dad is no more?
This is frustrating and the fact that people see this as normal behavior, infuriates me. I don’t go loitering in people’s homes, why should they do it at my mom’s house?
I ‘work night shift’ and get my rest in between my mom’s pee breaks in the morning, but it seems I can’t even have that nowadays.
