My Siblings Don't Contribute AT ALL.

by LH

Literally, not one single bit. They do not even ask me how it is going, how I am managing, do I need anything. They don't want to hear about grosser elements of caring for aging parents (mother with dementia) even though they know I have to endure the reality, not to mention the insane stress and marked decline in my own quality of life.


And I am the most vulnerable person in our family--low income with chronic illness, four children of my own, and two grandchildren I help with, yet my brother and sister remain self-centered and oblivious, enjoying the luxury of tending only to themselves, their partners, their jobs, their children.

What a vacation that would be.

At this point, my siblings are dead to me. I feel revulsion when I think about their indifference. Am I angry as well as disgusted? Yes indeed! Thank you for letting me vent!!!!
