My mom has ALS and I just want her last years to be full of love and happiness and energy and fun, but there is so much tension. It makes me so worried and sick. Mom's husband is not caring for her emotionally and there have been huge fights about how he is treating her. I have fully involved myself in these fights on the side of my mom trying to defend her....but it just gets messy. How can I fix their marriage? I shouldn't be getting involved, but I need to do everything I can to make my mom the happiest ever and she is just so worn out, she can't work it out. She just wants to settle for whatever she can get from him, but I will NOT let her settle for a medicre life! She needs to live like she's never lived before! She needs to be free and happy! I arrnaged for a family counselling session, and he originally said he would come, but then changed his mind later. The counsellor came and sat with mom and I, but she only came twice saying "there's little I can do about your relationship if he does not come to these counselling sessions". Is there some counselling that the ALS clinic offers? We need some serious counselling.
