Youngest of 3 and Taking Care of Elderly Mother with Dementia
I am feeling very frustrated because I am the youngest of 3 children and I have a bad back and I am caring for my mother 24/7.
My 2 older sisters both live within 15 minutes of me and I have to virtually beg my oldest sister to come over and help me with our mother. My middle sister is virtually non existent for visiting let alone a helping hand.
My sisters both work a part time job for the village that they live in. My oldest sister cleans for the elderly 3 days a week and both sisters have a part time job for 2 hours a day, 1 hour in the morning and 1 hour in the afternoon. There is really no reason they can't come over and help me out with our mother.
I have severe sleep Apnea so I don't sleep well and my oldest sister came over to give our mother a shower and my sister got angry with me because I needed to take a nap while she was here and basically told me I couldn't nap while she was here with our mom.
When my oldest sister gets done with her 1 hour in the afternoon job she goes home and calls it a night but I just don't understand why I don't get anytime for myself at all. I don't have a life at all.
