Hi everyone, my mum has PSP and has just moved in with my sister who is not coping with the situaton. Mum is very negative, constantly criticising and whingeing, horrible PSP symptoms. Mum is still eating and basically looking after herself but can't live alone because she falls often. I live overseas and can't be there to help. My sister has just lashed out at me because she is having to deal with it all on her own. We know there are respite services available but the issue is I'm on the other side of the world and this is unfair. I need to decide if I should relocate to be near my mum and share the burden.This would be an enormous overhaul for me and my partner. My sister has only asked for me to visit for a week but I know this is not really much help and what about when mum gets worse? Do I drag my partner acrossthe world now and start a new life? If we did move, we would both have to work full time so how could we help? Weekends? The Logistics are difficult How can I help my sister when she hates me, we can't even speak to each other at the moment. I feel guilty and helpless and she feels angry and hard done by.
Sorry to dump all that but I really don't know what to do.
I want to find a meaningful way to help Mum and my sister and without feeling like a completely selfish heartless horrible person. Can anyone help?
