Why am I doing this?

I am attempting to improve my relationship with my Mom, who lives with me full time. Mom needs some physical assistance, and is in poor health. Mom is diagnosed and medicated for a mental health disorder. Lately I have been finding it increasingly frustrating to deal with Mom's moods, needs, and communication style. Mom is forgetting things often throughout the day which also increases my frustration. We use PR training with our 5 dogs, and I have done some reading about tag-teach. I worked in the school system for several years with disabled children, and now work with disabled adults. Tagging makes sense in every way, so when my oldest daughter recommended I tag myself to help with my frustration, I decided to give it a go. I'm late in getting this started, so will do my best to remember accurately all the details, and attempt to keep up with new happenings in a timely manner.
