I Hate This and I Don't Want to Do It!
I unfortunately am the closest geographically to my elderly parents - one with Rheumatoid arthritis and one with Parkinson's and dementia.
My mother- with the RA, expects me - commands me - to be there at the drop of her hat no matter what- to step in after the nurse who comes 2x a week leaves.
This disrupts my life on a daily basis - it's never ending and it only gets worse as my father cannot be left by himself at all for any length of time. She refuses to put him in a place where he would be safe - and she expects me to be the step in at all times.
My sisters do not want to hear me complain, they offer no support, only criticism. I want to move away so I don't have to be in this role.
I love my parents but I am not cut out for this and I resent and am angry that I have been put into this position, not by choice.
