You’d learn to put up boundaries. My mom isn’t cognitively sound and my dad is overwhelmed by it all. She’s in rehab and we’re trying to figure out how to bring her home and minimize injuries while still protecting dad. I have power of attorney, so I’m trying to figure out all their finances and debt all while trying to keep my overbearing older sister, no show older brother, and co-dependent younger sister at bay. They keep hounding me trying to be involved like they don’t trust me, but I stay patient, and tell them that I’ll take care of it. I feel like they’re just offloading on me because I’m really the zen one. They want me to feed into their anxiety and I refuse.
