Re: Mother is Dying of Lung Cancer, sister doesn't care...

I'm sorry that your sister has her own problems and can't handle the care of her dying mother. There is no reason for you to put on a 'face' just for mom. Did you think your mom doesn't know your sister has problems. Your sister's problems should have nothing to do with anything. Stop listening to all her complaints and waiting until your mom dies isn't the time to say something ...the time is now. Even unstable people need a reality check and she needs to hear it from you. If you can't bring yourself to tell her how you feel certainly stop sitting there listening to her rant and rave about the negative ...the least you can do is tell her to stop it and walk away and never engage in her rantings. I am sorry your mom is dying that alone is hard enough to deal with...you have been a good daughter.
