It has been 12 years and still the loss of my mom is still more painful because of my dad's too soon remarriage. It's not only because it was too soon, but that both my dad and his wife insist on manipulating my brother and I into accepting their "blended family". They insist that I put aside my longing for specialness and separateness and embrace all my new stepsiblings. Since I only get to visit my dad, wife and extended family 2-3 times a year, every time I visit there is misunderstanding, agenda and controlling leading to hurt and some sort of falling out. Any input from step family members as a result of a diseased parent?
