How do you live with the guilt of not wanting to take care of your mom anymore?
My mom had a stroke 5 years ago. She is doing great but we are financially going down. I have help with taking care of my mom but sometimes I don't want to deal with her issues. I also have a brother who is borderline mentally retarded whose health isn't that great either. All I look forward to anymore is dealing with emotional issues from everyone who relies on me, financial debt, and a mother who I am tired of taking care of but who I love very much. I get so sick of myself bitching about everything and life. I see how tough others have it but I didn't ask for this. It is like I am an only child because no one can help take some of the responsibility from my shoulders. My brother can't help either and I can see after my mother passes away, that he is ALSO going to require 24 hour care one day.
Life really sucks right now and I feel guilty for resenting both my mom and brother. I also hate my dad for dying 12 years ago and leaving all of this responsibility to me. I can't even finish school because now we cannot afford it. Life sucks.,
