I'm sorry, I know there are plenty of children out there that get stuck taking care of an abusive parent and that is awful. But, I was a good parent and when my husband dies I will want to live with one of my daughters because I love them and they were my life for 20 years. I was a stay at home mom and devoted to my daughters and my husband. I didn't have to take care of a parent, luckily because Father died young and Mother was abusive and, I MADE the choice not to welcome her into my home.
So am I crazy to think there are kids out there taking care of or helping out their parents BECAUSE they love them and feel grateful to repay them, so to speak. Maybe this forum does not attract that kind of situation, but I'm hoping someone on here is NOT overwhelmed and in fact enjoys what they do. TIA for any responses,
