Hi. I know there are no answers and I'm probably wrong to even vent; but, geez, I'm exhausted taking care of someone who leeches off of everyone around him. My dad is 76 and basically threw himself, e.g. finances, mortgage, problems, everything on his children, okay, since I was 11 (I'm now 43) but gave up on life since he was 56. He had no money coming in, lived off of credit cards, filed bankruptcy and basically threw himself on all his children. In total, we gave him $2200/mo to which we have no idea where the money has gone. All of the children are no longer speaking with each other because we all hate the way the other deals with dad. He's a leech and has paid zip for his life. We've paid for his apt. I paid for his car/insurance. He takes in $900 from pensions and social security and still occasionally asks for more. I've laid down the limits. Now, he's losing his apt because the owner says they want to sell it. I offered to have him move back with me temporarily. He lived with me for 5 years in the past. I'm very hesitant to go this route again, but he's very limited in options. He doesn't have any credit, still owes people money, ditches paying anyone. Basically hides his whole life on being responsible for anything. He has 7 kids. Was thinking about turning my garage into a living space so he can stay there, but man! My conscience says no. His response was: "que sera sera". Aggravated me. There will be nothing that comes out of this. I helped upkeep a my parents old house (I was the property manager but took out my own money to pay to clean, change the appliances, even return security deposit when my brother who took the security deposit didn't have it and contributed $200/mo to help support the existing mortgage on the house - my dad took out several mortgages on it). Then, my brother who sold it got more than what he asked, probably netted $38-40k, took the money and ran. Pretty much a slam dunk, in your face move that said, hey the $38-40k covers my pain for having to shoulder the house and pay taxes on it at the end of the year. So, you see, there is nothing in this for me to keep up this caregiving of my dad. He doesn't deserve it, but my conscience keeps telling me to help and I know it's the right thing to do; but, for how long?
