I have a Brother who lives far Away but Could Fly in for a Weekend but Won't.

by Irritated Sister
(VA)

The baby lives in California. He is the youngest of 5 and retired navy. He can afford to come visit our mom but has given every BS excuse. "It isn't in his culture" to be around family and it's the long distance relationships military people have accustomed to. BS!!!


He hasn't seen mom in about 12 years. He says he loves us. I have begged him to visit which would at least put our mothers mind at peace.

I have a brother who visits from Philadelphia, one an hour away but has mental issues and would rather him not visit much and another brother who lives an hour away who won't even talk to her!

I am the one with kids a job and such who is doing all the work. She is in assisted living now but I still take her to doctor appointments wherein I lose work time.

I also deal with her sickness and emotional issues due to my brothers who wont visit. I'm really done with those two brothers. If they can't spare the time nor money, screw them!
