She calls me EVERY day sometimes more than once. I love her & I know that she is bored, but I don't have that much to talk with her about, especially 2x a day-for heavens sake.
It is causing me a great deal of stress - to the point that I sometimes won't answer the phone if I see it's her calling. She seems to have lost all concept of time & schedules & the things that go with adults who work full time & have families. She calls at 6:00 in the evening when we are trying to get dinner on the table or we are sitting down eating. She called tonight at 5:15 - I had only been home from work for 15 minutes.
How can I reestablish boundaries without hurting her feelings - but it is getting out of hand. I am the oldest of three kids & unfortunately for me, my brother & sister are not as easy to get ahold of as I am. Help - I am internalizing all this stress, frustration and anger & I know it's not good for me.
