My Life is on Hold

by Katie
(Ohio)

My husband moved to another state for work. I stayed behind to help take care of my parents. My brother who lives in 1 1/2 hours away was going to retire and move across the country. My father died my Mother is in assisted living. I am the one who does everything. Shopping, Doctors visits emotional support. My brother leaves town for 6 weeks at a time and never even tells me his schedule!


I would like to be able to leave and spend time with my husband! They never even consider this! My resentment of my brother is growing. if I mention it to my Mother she takes on the Oh it's all my fault, I should just die! This has been her life long way of dealing with stress!
