About Me:
I am 54 years old. I am married. I live in a apartment overhead of my parents home. I am disabled with intracranial hypertension. I am the sole caregiver of my mom since 1993. I was the caregiver to my dad until feb of last year. My dad had a stroke and went into the hospital. When I went to get my dad from the care facility my brother had taken him home with him. Then the bank account disappeared leaving my mom with limited income. Then he came and took the car and left us without a way to take her around. We had to go buy a cheap used car to take her around. We have to help pay her bills. Out of her 6 adult kids only myself and my one sister comes and sees her. My mom gets depressed over this. I worry about my dad because I can not see him. My brother has been emotionally abusive to me my whole life and what if he is doing this just to get back at me. Is my brother caring for my dad emotional needs. My dad is a very sensitive person. My mom and I can not see him. My mom only gets to see him on the one day a week they have seniors club together.
