I love my mother and always will however, when my

father died unexpectedly myself and husband decided to buy my mother's house and she fixed up the back garage apartment for herself with some of that money.

We (my husband and self and my daughter always treated her like family like taking her on vacations with us, out to dinner and that sort of thing because I love her and don't want her to feel lonely or left out.

Now, my sisters see this as my job and don't want to ruffle their lives in any way. I don't remember signing a contract saying this was my job totally.

I am so behind in my own house and life that I feel mad all the time at them and don't want to even ask for help anymore as it seems to lead to very hard feelings and no understanding of how much this has affected med and my families life.

I am so mad at the sister that I always thought would be there for me right now. Her housework and family cannot be bothered but so much you know even when I express how depressed and anxious I am most of the time.

I am afraid this will affect my feelings for her forever! In fact the hate word actually came into my mind and I have never thought like that before.
