I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS! She is 88 and has five children, all of whom have abandoned her...for good reason. She's now in a nursing home and all her care, banking, bills, errands, it just goes on and on and on, has landed on me...a daughter-in-law who has never never liked her. If I abandon her, she will have no one, so guilt keeps me going. Now the nursing home she is in is insisting I get "power-of-atorney" so I can sign for her etc. Her family are all pushing me to get it so they can wash their hands of her. I absolutely don't want to be in charge of her finances, I'm not even family...just a daughter-in-law, and I can't stand her. I'm furious with her family, my husband included, who is is guilting me into doing everything for her. My days are filled with caring for her and I want out. My own parents are failing in health and I can't even get to help them, and I really want to help my own parents. I can't stand this place I've found myself, and there's no way out. I'm a horrible, selfish person, but why should all this fall on me.
