Primary Carer Getting Little

by Christine
(UK)

I have been the main person to visit and see to my elderly parents when they are ill.I have 4 sisters, 3 of which live a 1 hour flight away and are on higher wages than me. I have 'begged' them to help more, explaining the impact on my time, job, holidays and health. However, although they have agreed to visit a little more, they still insist I should be the first point of contact since I live (1 hour by bus) away from them. They have offered NO financial assistance to help me out whatsoever.One sister said she had her hobby to see to. One sister said recently she was too busy to even discuss the future.


Friends are shocked.I am actually thinking of abandoning my whole family as this has been going on for 10 years.

I would appreciate your opinions-

Thanks

Christine

Christine, get yourself a life. You're entitled to it. You'd be amazed how well people manage without you when they have to.
