Always the Receiver

by Shell
(VA)

My husband and I care for my 88 year old mother. One of my brothers helps but the two she think so much of does nothing.


When she goes in the hospital my husband and I take off work to be with her. I do this because I love my mom dearly and there is nothing I wouldn't do for her but she hurts my feelings so much.

Yesterday she said to me, "I don't care for you or your husband!" It hurt so bad when we do everything for her. I'm still going to do because I get no help from the others. I have two brothers and a sister all older than me.

My brother next to me helps and goes but I have to do the most. The other two she love so dearly do nothing. They don't hardly even go to see her but she call them all the time and never call me unless something is wrong.

Don't get me wrong I love her dearly and I take care of her because this is what kids do for parents but I can't take the insults. I ask God to forgive me if I do wrong like when she do me that way I want call her for a day or so. But she want answer the phone for me and that worries me even more! Just don't no what to do!!!

Heartbroken in VA!
