When I was younger, I gave my all to love and help my parents and siblings. Caregiving has ripped our 'family' apart, which I feel, was fueled by my mother's special/biased treatment of her sons... (I'm the only daughter). My mother says, "They have a life". "They're busy" .... I now doubt (after so many years have passed with almost nil communication) that we will ever have contact again after all this is said and done.
