off of me to help me to be able to handle the stress of taking care of OUR parents. All I asked of them was $40.00 per month from each of them. A whopping $200.00 per month for all I do for OUR parents. I don't see that $40 is so much to ask from each of them since they do basically nothing for them and believe me they can afford it!
I received a call from one sister (which in my opinion is the busiest) and she galdly agreed to send me the money, she took the time to call. One sister said she would "think about things". Please....what is there to think about.
So long story short, I can not emotionally, mentally, physically keep caring for my parents. How do I handle the guilt of telling them they will have to care for themselves? And no, I don't believe they have the money to pay me themselves. My brothers and sisters do not want to help with my parents care b/c they know how hard it is to be around them.
