I am caring for my mother who is 79 years old. She is a hypochondriac, she does have some medical problems but she brings a lot of it on herself by sitting here all day and thinking up something that could be wrong with her. I have three sisters, granted they live out of state but since I have been taking care of mom & dad (he died in July 1998) since around 1993, not one of them have offered to come out here and relieve me for a few days, when I have asked them to they just can't work it into their lives. I have taken over all of mom's bills as my dad left her nothing. This includes her house payment plus every thing else. I have asked them to pay to have someone stay with her when she has been released from the hospital for one thing or another, they have informed me that they will only pay a fourth of that charges.
This house is still in mom's name, I tried to assume the VA loan, so it would be in my name, mom would not hear of that, so I am making the payments, do not get any tax benefit, do not get it reported on my credit report. Yes I do live in this house, only because Mom needs someone with her. There is a lot more but will not bore you at this time. When some thing does happen to Mom I will never see or talk to anyone of my sisters again. I don't want to have anything to do with them ever again. I just became an only child. Thanks for listening
