496: Schizophrenic Mother a Duty Like No Other | Feedback Friday

496: Schizophrenic Mother a Duty Like No Other | Feedback Friday

By Jordan Harbinger

The schizophrenic mother with whom you've never had a great relationship is out of hospital and probably in need of high maintenance care. You feel guilty for saying so, but just being around her makes you want to leave town and disappear without leaving a forwarding address. Is there a way to ensure she's taken care of without taking on the burden of providing that care, and does it make you a terrible person for even wondering? We'll find answers to this and more here on Feedback Friday!

And in case you didn't already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Gabriel Mizrahi (@GabeMizrahi) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at Now let's dive in!

On This Week's Feedback Friday, We Discuss: How can you ensure your schizophrenic mother gets the care she needs without taking on a burden that eclipses your entire life? Your cousin is in the middle of a divorce from an emotionally manipulative woman who is threatening to lie to the police that he's been abusing her -- which would threaten his DREAMer status and potentially send him back to the country where he was born but hasn't seen since he was nine (he's 29 now). Is there any legal protection he can pursue? You're getting a divorce from your husband, who also happens to be your business partner. You don't want a stake in the business you helped build from the ground up, and you don't want money; you just want your dog and your truck, and you want to start a new life. But are you making a mistake to walk away with nothing? As a high school teacher, you're worried the kids you teach to live in today's world won't have a place in a tomorrow operated increasingly by artificial intelligence. What will the future of work look like, and how can you best prepare your students for this potentially dystopian future?
