Tired of It

by Ilene
(NC)

I am a 54 year old woman, also taking medication to control leukemia, and lucky to be alive.


About the same time I find out health information about myself, my brother hands over the cleaning and grocery shopping over to me for elderly dad.

My brother cleaned my dad's place and grocery shopped for him for 8 years, my brother told me two years ago, it was my turn to help dad now since he has had to.

I work part time and can only grocery shop for my dad, or other things my dad needs, on my days of of work. I clean my dads place once a month. I feel resentment that this was dumped on me, as I am trying to take care of myself too.

My dad helps me with a bill or two my paycheck won't cover, and I can only help dad with so much, but he complains I am not doing enough for him. What should I do? My dad rakes me over the coals if I forget something off of his grocery list or some small infraction.
