Eldest Daughter with 4 Siblings
Mom and dad moved close by around 7 years ago. Prior to that they left my childhood home where they raised myself and 4 siblings. They moved to Florida, bought and sold antiques after retiring early bought and sold two homes losing money on each and thus, have outlived their retirement, after spending and living their middle ages happy and without the worry of us just as they wanted.
They are kind, loving and overbearing. Mom wants to be entertained on all of my days off..I mow their yard, buy the groceries take them to appointments when able as I work full time, have a spouse and have two children (young adults) who live an hour away and I enjoy visiting on occasion.
My mom most of the time puts guilt on me about wanting to go to see the kids, go shopping with me, just darn right all the time wants to be with me. One sibling who is well of financially finally started contributing enough money to help with mowing the yard during the summer because I told her I was stressed trying to maintain two households. The other three siblings have many excuses as to why they cant help financially and I'm sick of it.
I have limited resources and I find a way. What else can I say? I'm frustrated and angry. I love my parents dearly and am angry my mom is so needy. They have a mortgage and many medical expenses and I feel so bad it doesn't leave much after those things are paid for but it hurts me that their financial situation is how it is because of poor decisions made by them at my age!
Please help...I sooooo love my parents, but do not necessarily love my life..Wish my mom would quit inquiring about every minute of my whereabouts and putting guilt on me when I choose not to share.
