The disappointment never ends with my family.
I just tried to post this but I don't think it took so I will start over. The family vacation was wonderful. My sister and niece after 2 months of them calling me every name in the book and screaming at me did bring moms car back. I told them that if they chose to take it again I don't even want to know about it. I'm tired of there behavior and they know my mom said NO they could not have it. They made every excuse as to why they could not make an 8 hour drive to spend time with her. Mom had a wonderful time, the smile alone on her face was so worth the trip. My cousins and friends were so amazed at how much better she seems from last year. I do believe that Mom was just severely depressed from all her family losses, I don't thing that its really Alzheimer's. I know she has memory issues but she seems to be improving, she is busy all the time now and has a wonderful caregiver that makes her laugh all the time. I know I need to just stop all communication with my sister and I almost have but the demands keep coming and I am so disappointed at what I'm seeing. I made the comment that mom was so happy going home that we would be taking her more often, its a 14 hour drive for us but we flew mom and her caregiver in to make it easy on her. My husband choked up when he saw how happy she was so he made the comment that we will bring her as often as possible, she was born in the bedroom of the farm house to let you know the meaning of the place, my family has owned the farm for about 100 years. My sister threw a fit and had the nerve to tell me that I'm only allowed to go once a year because my niece has her car. We even offered them 10,000 to put it back and buy a car and they refused. I know I could cause a problem and report this but I just don't have it in me and do not want to go there. I just can't understand how my own family could do this over a used car!!!!! I have never been so disappointed in people more or less my own family memebers, I so lucky to have the friends and my husbands family for support but I try not to discuss this with anyone but you guys due to the embarrassment. My sister all of a sudden called Mom after all this time to ask her to come visit for a few weeks, well Mom said NO, she told one of my friends that they have never done anything for her and me and my husband are the ones that care so she did not want to go back there, I don't think my sister cares, I'm sure she is relieved to be honest by now I'm getting emails that she should just throw her hands up and walk away, well she did that 3 years ago when she informed me that she would NOT help and would put Mom in a home but now she is claiming that I was always the favorite. I don't understand why I'm letting this bother me so bad, I wish I could just walk away. I have though about seeing someone professionally but I can't even imagine when I could squeeze that in, I work a full time demanding job, I have my mom, a special needs child and my husband travels. I'm so depressed over this that I cry all the time when I'm by myself and the rest of the time try to put on a happy face. I love my mom dearly but I just can't get over the fact that family would do something like this and try to lie to cover it up.
