Dismissive of MCTD by family
I realize that some of you may not be in my exact position, but I bet you have some suggestions.
My mom is in assisted living, we’re selling condo, lots of family drama surrounding these things. As usual, I’m the one who’s “guiding “ these processes. It HAS to be me bc my siblings are not trustworthy, hence my mom made me her POA.
The problem is that my siblings seem to gloss over my health issues. Idk if they’re unwilling to understand the complexities of MCTD or if it’s an excuse not to BE there. I think there’s resentment that I am the POA, n hence, the “money manager “. Even though I’m handling the paperwork, which is exhausting, I still need help with doing errands for mom .
I think they’re thinking that it’s just a disease that can be overcome with positive thinking or rearranging my life to accommodate my mom.
I wish I COULD rearrange when I flare or am fatigued!!! They don’t understand. I sense frustration and anger on their part.
I’ve tried talking to them and get the usual “ have you tried _________?” Fill in the blank from anything from gluten free to swinging a dead chicken. Or, it must suck to be so tired. It’s insane.
I’m at the point where I don’t want to have any other relationship with them except a cordial one over my mom .
At my breaking point of blowing up in anger and tears of frustration.
Thanks in advance!
