I did share the care and shopping of my mum , with my sister. She did more as I was still working and my sister never did have a job outside the home and kids. She lived 5 miles from mum and drives , and I lived 50 miles away , didn’t drive and have an invalid husband for the past 23 years. I did what I could though! Our two brothers did nothing!! Now mum is no longer with us and I look after two grandkids twice a week, before and after school! If I thought for one moment that my daughter took me for a mug I would walk away from it all. But she appreciates every little and big thing I do for her...... we do not ‘gush’ over each other or are very ‘kissy as a family, but we all appreciate what any one of us can ‘bring to the party ‘ ..as it were. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, but meanness ...self centredness...and disregard for each other’s feelings , don’t come into it. You need to extricate yourself from a lot of your commitments...and give yourself time to mend your mind and body.
Can’t stop dwelling my problems - obsessive thoughts
I'm now seriously missing out - feeling miffed
I hate the name they're giving her - have to bite my tongue
