My mom can go to the bathroom and wipe herself, but she can't pull up her pants. So she has to come and get me to pull her pants up. I don't understand. She has arthritis and says she can't grasp them to pull them up, and yet she can wipe herself. I can't help thinking she just wants attention. I bought her pants that have a very loose and stretchy waist. It's a minor thing, I know, compared to all the other things I've read on this site, but I'm irritated.
