My 2 sisters and I live in the same town. I went through hell getting our mom on Medicaid and CBA, then eventually in a nice assisted living. They rarely lift a finger for her or me. They might come by for an hour or two every other week or sometimes once a week, but they serve a little time, then go back to their lives. I am left with everything that woman needs. They come by just enough for me to not be able to say that they do nothing.
I've fought, and begged, and pleaded for them to do the right thing toward mom and me, but they will not. They say I'm supposed to keep them informed of any needs their mom has. Then when I do, they have excuses for not doing the right thing. I can honestly say that I hate them, even though I know that hate will take the life right out of you. But, yes, I do hate them so badly.
I have a family, and troubles, and responsibilities just like everyone else, yet I have to sacrifice my life away to take care of her because the elderly have many needs. CAN YOU HELP ME because I'm a good person and I feel much hate in me right now. I am drained and totally depressed. When it gets down to where the rubber meets the road I find them evil, even though they go to church and think very highly of themselves!
