I know what you are going through. I have siblings but has been hard to get consistant help. My mom is in a nursing home now which I think if she had the right help, she could have stayed in asst living. She got down to 92 lbs and it was hard getting help from family to even go feed her. I recently got into an argument with 2 of my sisters and my brother. They all have stated that it's my choice to take care of our mom. I don't understand except satan wants people not to have compassion. I think these last 13 years have taken it's toll. I have been out of work the past 2 weeks but am in good spirits! Take one day at a time. E-mail me anytime! Barbara (BRorie@aol.com )View Thread
