Another difficult day here at my brother's house. Days like today make me want to move back to Washington. At least I was content there. I only moved here because he is not physically able to care for our parents as they get older.
Back when I was young a foolish, I used to allow men to treat me terribly. But that stopped long ago, and I seriously have no intention of making an exception even for my brother, despite his MS. I try my best every day to put on my happy face and be the best I can be. SO he was doing some more unnecessary remodeling (moving the spice cupboard away from over the stove...WHY?) and I was joking with him about all the stuff he does when he snarled at me. I walked away and have not said more than 10 words to him the rest of the day.
Oh wait, I take that back...he asked how long I was going to stay mad at him this time. My answer...'until I'm not' Then he said all grouchy to me, well I'm sorry, I didn't know you were joking' so that lead to a few other things, but I never raised my voice and again walked away. What bother's me the most I guess is that I try my best to be respectful, considerate, kind and understanding, and I try to be the best I can be, because the situation is different than most siblings. Sadly, I let this ruin my day. I have those days when it overwhelms me to be treated like crap and let it slide. Being new in this little town, I have no friends of my own so no one to talk to. Think I will look up websites that support people who live with MS patients when I get home tonight.
What sucks the most about it is that we are supposed to go out to dinner with our parents for their anniversary tonight. I know I don't want to go now due to the tension between him and I.
