Selfish Sister

by Natalie
(Los Angeles)

I am not a baby boomer, actually my parents are baby boomers. My dad has had Alzheimer's since age 57, he is now 65. My parents moved in with my husband and I about 2 years ago. Because my sister and her husband kicked them out of "their house" which my parents lent them $30k for their down payment after living with them for 2 weeks.


At the time my sister was a stay home mom of one child.After that episode, I stopped talking to my sister because of a horrible argument and basically she refused to do anything. After having my mother repeatedly beg me to reconcile with my sister. I did.

My sister is the youngest and very spoiled. I feel that she just takes, she wants my dad to be in a home so my mom can take care of her two kids. My mom and I agreed that as long as my dad is not violent we would take care of him at home. So far it has worked.

My dad needs a lot of serenity. My sister constantly drop off her kids at my house and as you can imagine having two boys under the age of 4 only upsets my dad. I am mad at my mother and my sister.

I feel like I am being taking advantage of, I drive my folks to every appointment, I schedule all of my days off around their needs. Yet when my sister needs money of help with the kids my mom gives in. My sister manipulates my mother by using her kids. I regret having her back in my life. She takes and takes.
