I have an older sister who seems to think she should be making all the decisions and gets angry when she is excluded, or thinks she's being excluded. She calls doctors, hospitals, and others without letting me know first (whereas I could probably provide the answer), pumps my mother for information, pumps other siblings for info, and gives unsolicited advice. Its annoying to say the least when that advice does not gel with my own ideas being that I am in residence. Anyway, anyone else have this issue?

My sister rang mums geriatrician wanting a "prognosis" he told her he will only deal with the fulltime carer and refused to talk to her! you should have heard her she was shocked i asked her why he should talk to her and what the helll would she know about mums illness? my elder brother on the otherhand educated himself on the internet and so understands he sent them all an email to butt out of my business unless they want to care for her fulltime!
