Exhausted! My siblings and their excuses! Please give me some advice!!!
by Exhausted Daughter
My parents are 81 and 82. My dad had a stroke in 2009. He fell apart all at once. I'm the baby girl of the family. I was laid off of work one month before he had his stroke. My Mom was in Better health then. Now she's in bad health.
She will not go to the Doctor. I think she has dementia. My daughter was killed in auto accident in 2005. My Mom will not ride in car. My dad had stage 4 cancer of the stomach and blockage of lower intestines.
He came through the surgery. Thanks to the Dear LORD! Now I'm their sole caregiver and I'm wore out. I do all the cleaning, cooking, paying their bills. I do everything!!!
My twin moved closer to home to help! She gives the excuse they watch her and all they do is talk about me. The one who talks about me is my Mom I think it's due to the dementia. Then my other sister went through issues after marring a man she found out was gay.
She always married men that took care of her. Then she went through a breakdown. She said our dad molested her which we know isn't true. She was always gone. We all shared a room together. When she had to hire lawyer my Dad paid $15,000.
My dad is tight when it comes to money. It's due to he didn't have much growing up. I have a brother who lives a hour away. He don't
have a car. My oldest sister doesn't either. But her son does. She still want come. She would go through their stuff trying to see what they have.
My sisters said I chose this. They say if I want to live my fifties taking care of them it's my choice. I helped my twin to move down here. We gave her money to set her up in apartment. I still give money. The thing that makes me mad none of my siblings are married. I'm the only one.
Now my mama says she's prays that The Lord would take her home. She says my daddy will not even talk to her. I find out from my daddy my mama don't want my twin over there. My mom has always been a giving woman. Now she thinks everyone wants to take from them. Which they don't. I just like to have one day or just a vacation.
My sisters said they had their fun at our age. They did. I had a best friend I use to talk to about all of this she just died. She was 2 yrs. Younger than me. Now my other daughter worries about me.
My best friend that died now everybody is helping her husband and her daddy. They all tried to tell me she grieved herself to death. I know that wasn't true and they know it. She lost her mom!
Her mom was tired from taking care of everyone except my best friend! Thanks for reading!!! Any suggestions?
