Responsibility for Mother

by Mary
(Austin Tx)

My Mother has children from three marriages-5 children; 3 boys and 2 girls. I'm the oldest-64. The boys have totally abandoned their mother--do not want any responsibility. It has been me and my sister who have given help. I have no communication with my little sister. My Mom will be moving near me in a place for people on fixed income.


I know my husband and I will be on this venture alone. I'm feeling resentful because it will really tie us down because even though she drives, her eyes are bad and she has several medical conditions occurring.

I am also scared of the financial drain. Any advice?

There is no advice to make things better. But the fact that you already know you're in this alone is a big step.

Don't expect any help for anyone. I've had my mother living with me for 11 years and I get no help from any of them.

They don't even call once in a while...not even Christmas. So honey, you are in this until you're not. Good luck.
