Grandma lives with me and other family members in their house. Grandma only pays for the cost of her groceries, medication, gas money, and what she uses in electricity. She does not pay rent. I take care of her pretty much 24/7 and do not get paid. I don't pay rent or anything else. I suffer from social anxiety so I was not working before taking care of Grandma. As of the last few months, Grandma has become a pain to take care of. Her doctors want her to get up and move around every two hours, preferably every hour. She can't remember this and I have to go tell her. She keeps me up at night with her moaning and sometimes wakes me up early needing help in the bathroom. I cannot go to bed before her because I have to put her to bed or she'll stay up all night. I rarely get my eight hours of sleep. This is taking a toll on me mentally as I keep doing stupid things like putting an ice tray in the microwave rather than the freezer. I'm also always having to clean up after her. She's always managing to get crumbs in the carpet, she sometimes accidentally throws her disgusting tissues on the floor, she deliberately throws her tissue boxes on the floor (she goes through two to three per week). She sometimes gets poop on the toilet seat and pee on the floor. Basically, it's a bunch of little annoying things. And sometimes she treats me like a personal servant that is expected to drop everything whenever she wants something. I find that I'm a different person now and others are noticing. I feel like if this is what I have to put up with to keep Grandma out of assisted living that she doesn't want to go back to, then I should at least receive a small salary. One family member said I should get $100 a week, but I came up with $200 a month. Should I ask to get paid and if so, how much? By the way, depending on what I got paid, a portion of it would go to the animals that my family/househould rescues and cares for. It would go to their veterinary expenses and food. The rest would most likely be put into my savings account. I'm not a spender, I'm a saver.
