I feel very childish for the way I feel.
My Family does nothing for my Mother, they call maybe once a month if that, they have not seen her in I will guess 2 years and have made it plain that if I expect help, well lets just say they refuse to even take her for 2 weeks. They yell at me all the time at any decision that I make and want to sit back and direct traffic but will not lift a finger. My question, I told you in my last email that I blocked my sister and niece from any communication except email. I had to let something go the stress was just overwhelming. Well I have done well and been able to concentrate at the tasks at hand since they can no longer reach me. Mother's Day comes and all of a sudden My sister and niece send flowers, call her for 5 minutes. I know this is so childish on my part and I feel just awful for admitting this but it made me so angry, Of course, please don't take me wrong, I was happy that Mom was happy but I can't believe how upset it made me to think that after all they have said and done and made it plain that they could even care if they see our mother that they could buy flowers and call her for 5 minutes and it is suppose to make everything OK. Again, I was happy to see Mom smile but it was so hard to sit and listen about how wonderful they are. Is this normal on my part, I feel so childish and just so ashamed of my feelings. I feel like an only child when it comes to her care and I know if I was not here they would put her in a home and have even been told that if they had her they would just put her in a home. Mom's caregiver ask at one time well how often would you visit your Mom is she were to be in a home and they said well why would you do that she won't remember anyways.
