She said: & # 39; My mother is in her eighties and she is not far away from me. And my sister Julia is great, she lives a lot closer to my mother and she does a lot for my mother. She is always there and I am always working.

& # 39; My mother is fantastic, she never makes me guilty, she doesn't do the & # 39; Hello stranger, I haven't seen you in years, but I feel it. & # 39; & # 39;

She added: & # 39; My mother is not dependent, she is actually very independent, but you just feel that you may not have as many years as you would like and that you would like to spend that time. It is a real struggle.

& # 39; I have so few days when I don't work. I really feel torn. Every time we talk about it, I think I should give my mother more priority, I must make more room, but it's really hard. Life stands in the way. I am to blame for that particular cooperating girl's daughter. & # 39;
