life in and around NYC is insane

The wonder twins

You laugh at my stories about the crazy mixed up family I was born into.
Truth is, it's actually sad.
The other day they told me that I am "nothing", that I am "not their sister", that this house is "not my home", and that I "deserve nothing because I contribute nothing".
You would think, from what they said, that I am the most selfish and self centered person on the face of the planet.
I try to give them a lot of leeway these days.  After all, my father needs a lot of hands-on care now, and we manage without a home health care aide because my sisters have taken on the role of caregiver.    I know it's not easy, and they don't get much of a break.
But honestly . . .
