I am caring for my father that lives in my sister's home. My sister is always angry when we talk about my father. She says he's faking his symptoms and that I enable it because whenever he calls, I run to help or resolve the issue. I often arrive at my sister's home to find it dirty and no food for my father to eat. I would run to buy some groceries, spending my own money, only to be met with criticism over what I bought (nevermind an offer to repay). To make matters worse, she calls my other sister and is completely different. The two of them agree on stuff and get along really well. My other sister is distant and doesn't see the day to day problems I get called about. So my distant sister thinks I'm over reacting.
I ask the group. is this normal among siblings trying to care for an aging parent? I am at the point where I want to distance myself as well because I am wearing thin with running to resolve issues and then being criticized by my sisters when all I'm trying to do is help care for Dad. What to do? I'm at the end of my rope :-(
