Yes,,,I def hear you Debra,,,my grown daughter's do not care about what i have been through.....i had emergency surgery,,,died on the table,,,won't bore you with the whole story,,,but,,,I was in the hospital for over 2 mon and on vent for over a week,,,couldn't walk for 2 months..on walker when I got home,,,,had to beg someone just to help me get something to drink or eat,,,had deep wounds,,3, needed packed for 3 months,,,visiting nurses came 2 or 3 days a week,,,had to try to do them myself,,very difficult,,they wouldn't help me..,my oldest went to drug store and bought a hand mirror,,,threw it in my lap and yelled here,,do your own wound care, I can't look at it....wouldn't help me clean the powder room,,,told people visiting not to use it cuz I used it,,,it was weeks before I could do it right,,,
after all I've done for them,,,taking care of them when they are sick,,,took care of her when she broke her leg,, waited on her hand and foot,,same thing when she was pregnant and on complete bedrest,,,i cannot believe I raised such uncaring insensitive people,,,I am embarrassed about it,,,and have not told anyone in the family or any of my friends how they treat me,,,,
I have always been told "everything comes so easy for you,,,I could never do what you do"
well,,,let me say this,,,they are probably right,,,I am doing it,,,all by myself,,,and any one of them would have fallen apart by now!!!
hope things get better for you Debra,,,
