My wee mum (Alzheimer, vascular dementia, Parkinson’s) lives with me and my sons. I have changed my work pattern to care for her. I have converted my garage into a grannex. I deal with carers, social work, pharmacy, GP, hospital, relatives, occasional visits from old friends, admin, finances, SDS, the lot. I also have a demanding job, a neurotic manager, and am trying to deal with the fact that my eldest is leaving for Uni in a few weeks. My sister is a cow. She lives in her perfect, affluent little bubble-with her husband, less than an hour away. She is a part-time primary school teacher. Currently on her usual 6-week break. I am about at breaking point. I have asked my sister to help- even taking mum out for a couple hours at weekends would make such a difference-but only get excuses. She makes me feel guilty for asking. In her head it was my choice to move mum in with me. I am so very tired. It feels like there’s never a break. Mum has started to get really confused with day/night so I can’t even get a good night’s sleep. I feel bad for even writing this and know I need to stay strong but it is so hard. Mum can’t do anything any more. I am glad to be working at home just now so I know I can manage her meds 4 times a day. I’ve asked for respite, just a week here and there, but in Scotland NHs are pretty much closed because of Covid. Sorry to mump and moan. Does anyone else have siblings who are utterly selfish and really quite horrible?
