I feel the same way about my brother as Mimi feels about her sister.
I used to hold such anger against my brother for not helping, especially when my sister now has dementia and my oldest brother has passed on. There is no one left to help mom and dad except my brother and me. Since my brother has backed away from any involvement, I don't call him, I don't keep his adivsed of things and I just figure he'll have to deal with his own emotions once my parents are gone. I don't even let small minded people bother me any longer. I do what I have to do and with the help of my beautiful daughter, we are doing what we can to make sure my parents are safe and cared for.
Life goes on.
