This Teen Told Her Sick Mom She Won’t Take Care Of Her When She’s Too Sick To Care For Herself And She’s Asking The Internet If It Was Wrong

“She tried to charge rent to a minor and kicked you out when you were still a minor. Your mother gave birth to you but she didn’t nurture you.”


“Not at all. Tell your brothers they can all chip in and pay for a caretaker. And make sure the relatives know specifically how she treated you. Hide nothing.”


“She can apply for home care or move into a nursing home or in with one of your golden brothers. The fact that she blasted you publicly on social media shows even more how difficult it would be for you to be around her. You’d have to quit your job to be her full-time carer. You are not trained for that. (are you?)”

“You are essentially ‘a stranger’ to her, too, by her choice. Don’t feel guilty that you can’t or don’t want to do it. It’s no easy work and I guarantee you it would be thankless.”

“You don’t need to justify yourself to anyone. Period. Offer to help her find home care and have it set up for when she needs it. If she still tries to guilt you into it, hang up, and call whatever social services people are in charge of home care and get them connected.”


“She has only bothered to contact you now because she wants to use you. She has four other children she preferred for years until she became sick and she should go to them for help.”


“So…after all that background, as soon as you say you won’t care for you, she trashes you on Facebook. Guess that tells you where that stands.”
