Remember me?

My brothers and sister were not up to the task of watching over my parents. When my father died in June, I brought my mother to another state to live with me. She is nearing stage 6 Alzheimer's and is rarely lucid.


My problem is that she is constantly telling me that she wants to go live with my sister or one of my brothers because they will "take care" of her. We had issues in the past and I was not her "favorite" child. Unfortunately, none of the others had the slightest interest in helping her and were perfectly content to let her live alone.

I don't want or expect thanks. This is the right thing to do and I couldn't live with myself if I hadn't done it. My family has been amazing.

Most of the time, my mother forgets that she had me. She mentions the other kids and leaves me out. Just disheartening.....I was very depressed a couple of days ago. Feeling better now, but just wanted to vent.
