Siblings That Do Nothing, But Question Me On What I am Doing Very Frustrating

by Catherine
(Ireland)

Five siblings, one abroad, all others living nearer to elderly parent than me. However, it is always me who has to visit every single week, clean the house, do shopping, pay bills, carry fuel, bring communion, cut hair etc, etc. Asked for family meeting on two occasions. Nobody turned up or wanted to become involved.


Siblings constantly asking me why do I not do this, or that? I ask them what they are doing?

Very frustrating.

I wouldn't complain if I were you

If you've been following the majority of posts here you will see that many of us are living with our aging parent/s and do those chores on a daily basis.

That we don't have a "home" to go to or any escape from the continuous care we have to provide - some here care for more than just one parent and have no siblings to even vent to. Consider yourself one of the lucky ones.
