It has now been almost one year that I've been estranged from my parents (93).
Due to relationship poisoning by my brother and SIL, in order to facilitate Will changes and extracting money gifts from them. It has been horrendous but I have come through a nervous break-down, with much help from poster's on this site, for which I am very grateful. However, I am still smarting from the horror of how I was treated by my father mostly, but also my mother, and I suspect dementia, but there seems to be nothing I can do to mend things, and every day I think of the isolation of my mother, particularly, and the bewilderment I believe she is suffering.
I have detached from them, as advised by kind people on here, and this has worked, and I am no longer depressed and suicidal! I am wondering if old people get a kick out of stirring up trouble, and exerting their 'control' over their 'children' to show who is boss? But going as far as to try and incite violence from one offspring towards the other? Well, can they really be compos mentis as my aunt thinks? Or are they quite utterly insane?
They no longer want me to have their house (as they did for 20 years), and they even rubbed my nose in it by making sure that I wasn't even made an Executor of their Wills, or even talking to me about their decisions! I am 66 by the way!
I am scuppered, but hey ho, what fun they must be having creating all this conflict. Perhaps it all helps to keep their hearts beating with all this stimulation? Anything beats boredom I guess!
Hope my controlling psycho SIL and Brother are happy with the results of their manipulation, exploitation and relationship poisoning leading to isolation for my parents? Is there anything lower than this kind of despicable behaviour? I don't think so.
