This Week's Carenote - 4/1/14


I've been taking care of my dad for almost six years. He has alcohol induced dementia. Not only has all the physical work fallen on me, but also the financial. My twin sister is beyond wealthy and refuses to contribute one cent. I am now in bankruptcy due to all this and she still won't help. She just walks away and never looks back, and then yells at me for helping him. I am now very ill myself at 52 with spinal stenosis, PTSD after a rape, and panic disorder with agoraphobia so I'm afraid to leave my home. How can a twin sister (and you should know the secrets I carry for her) let me hang like this?
