Sibling Criticism - Never Ending with no Support
My mother has lived with me for six years because she can not live alone. I have three other siblings and two of which she can't even visit because the wives don't want her there.
Both of these brothers take whatever chance they get to criticize me on how I take care of my mother and in particular her finances. My mother gets a monthly check and the boys want to know every detail of my life and my personal finances and how we are spending this money. On the other hand, they are not interested in her health or how much work I do with her. Neither of them take her to appointments, cook for her daily, and make sure that she medication.
While my mother lives with me, they force her to pay hundreds of dollars a month to maintain a house that she has visited for a couple of days in the past year only because it was our childhood home. They ganged up on me because I turned off the electricity and gas in an empty house.
I feel resentful because if I were not the one making the sacrifice, I would not be the one criticized. How does that work. "No good deed goes unpunished" indeed.
