Only Daughter, Four Brothers
Since childhood, my mother always favored my brothers and spoiled them, but she was strict with me. My brothers grew up to be selfish irresponsible "little boys" in grown men bodies, that my mother continued to bail out.
She would not listen to my father and still gave them money without his knowledge. Three of my brothers got on drugs and two later died. I became the guardian of my older brother and the only one responsible to help my 80 year old mother.
She is very unappreciative and tells me she resents the time I spend taking care of my brother and not her needs. My brothers do not do anything for her. Yet, she talks about her "boys" all the time and at times been verbally abusive of me.
Many times, I have left her alone, only to have her call and leave messages or write letters in an attempt to make me feel guilty about abandoning her. My daughter did not come back home to live after college, instead stayed in another state.
My mother had already told her she was looking forward to her help in assisting me in taking care of her. I am looking to sell my home and move anywhere out of state, but I don't know how I will feel leaving her with no one to care for her.
