Past the Point of no Return?
My wife is taking care of her 91 yr old parents. She is the only child. She is doing all the cooking and was doing the cleaning. Our daughter is now helping 3 days a week.
I have been helping as much as I can, maintenance, mowing etc. Also, I keep up with all the duties in our own home. It is overwhelming.
We are both retired and would like to travel, but can't leave. It wouldn't be as bad if they would cooperate with us.
They are both Lovers of Money and will not pay for any help. They brag about how much money they have in the bank, which makes me furious as my wife and I are paying the bills.
My wife will not talk to them about this nor will she ask them for money. We also pay our daughter for her help. They want to stay in there own home and my wife is trying to do that.
They are NOT normal people.
I'm at the end of my rope and am seriously thinking about leaving. But I know that is not fair to my wife. I see our window closing everyday. We've been married 44 yrs. But I can also see our health going down hill everyday.
They just keep on breathing and demanding care.
What do we do????
