My husband & I invited my Mother to come live with us, when my Father passed, and she could no longer afford to stay in her own home. We built a house to accommodate her needs, ( she was given the Master suite of the house because it was downstairs, and she did not want to have to walk up those) which was a huge strain on our already bleak financial circumstances. Since then I have had to stop working, to take care of her....Mind you she was healthy most of that time, but wanted me to be available 24/7 to take her to doctor visits, Church events, Social gatherings and shopping. Meanwhile my two siblings’ bank accounts have swelled & they haven’t contributed a single penny the entire time. (That doesn’t bother her, though, she’s constantly telling ME, about their ‘trials & tribulations’ and regaling me with the details of the few gifts they have so ‘kindly’ found it in their hearts to send her😒😡)
My son is grown now & getting married this year, but we have been able to do very little towards that or MANY other events in his life for the past 15 years..
I love my Mother, but this has taken its’ toll on EVERYTHING in my life...
How can I resolve this issue, before we end up bankrupt, with no savings for our retirement ( which will be here in 10-15 years?), and still feel I’ve done the best for my Mother?
