I am 4th of 5 children living in London. My siblings live in Ireland near my parents. My mother has FTD and Alzheimer’s. She has had it for 7 years. I have been lucky in that when I go on holiday my husband myself and the kids get to spend weeks and weeks with the kids. My parents have a bedroom in our house so when they visit it is home from home. I do all I can to help I call several times a day because I want to chat to her and I think the chats are precious cos soon there won’t be any. My mother turned 70 in Feb. That’s when the trouble started. My siblings told me the night before(too late to books.Fight for a family of 5 - I have three kids under 7) my older sister told me that they divided us being there would be too much of a crowd. I started to feel something I had never felt before. Just a numb feeling of isolation. Then comments came thick and fast you are over there we are over here ... snide remarks . No Twain for them. Both my sisters have stopped talking to me. My brother still talks to me but I and just lost without being able to talk to them about mum. The heartache of losing her to this cruel ness and having them layer isolation on top. I don’t get it. If it wasn’t for full on motherhood I think I would be so low but can’t afford to be with a young family. My husband has to stay here for his job. We can’t move back.more reluctant to do so now too with then being so horrible and divisive one sister I know for a fact is telling lies about me tontge other to manipulate the one I was actually close to. Does anyone else have issues with siblings where parent is sick? Thanks need advice .
