Nurse of the Family

I moved in with my Mother 6 months ago. Since that time my brother and sister have totally flaked out. I am furious all the time with them. They go on about their lives and have the nerve to question me if they think our Mother is not getting the right kind of care.


The topper was when my Mom called my sister to tell her she "did not know where I was." My sister called and read me the riot act about leaving our Mother "alone." I was in the next bedroom - my Mother had just forgotten. Who decides who is to give up their life to take care of the elderly parent.

This is not just a part time job - it is a 24/7 job and the compensation is not even minimal pay. I love my Mother very much and feel it is a gift to be able to take care of her but come on now, the other siblings need to do their part also.
