Narcissism in Its Finest Form
It is very hard for me to understand how children of loving parents can be so narcissistic when asked to help with their parents care. How can they live with themselves?
I have been living with my mom for 2 and half years caring for her as Alzheimer's eats away her brain. The emotional stress in itself is enough for any average person to handle.
The other stresses such as grooming and financial stress makes the situation overwhelming on a daily basis for the caregiver.
What makes it hard is when I see the elderly woman across the hall have each of her 5 children take turns caring for her. Why can't my family be like that?
It has shown me the true colors of the people that I thought I could count on.
God bless all the caretakers who are caring for their parents. You are a great example for your children to follow.
To all the narcissists children who don't participate in their parents care, I would hate to see what Karma brings them when they become old.
