I've been taking care of my dad since I was 12. He's a quadriplegic and I am now 30. He has six kids including me. He is way too much to take care of for most people because his level of care is so high. He has ran the other kids to the point of exhaustion and they started neglecting him and taking his money. That's why I have him by myself now. Going on 4 years with this new arrangement. He never told his kids thank you. He never told us we were doing a good job or even encouraged us to have our own lives. Our teenage years were robbed from us. Young adulthood also taken. He raised us to be his personal slaves. He never says thank you. Why?
