Thanks, Elizabeth! My sister has been tougher about this than I have (once we sorted out that I wasn’t going to use Deb’s & my retirement funds to keep my parents in the style to which my sister thought they should be accustomed). Deb was the one with the moxie to steal my father’s car (twice! because my sister gave it back after the first time) to keep anyone from being killed when he tried to drive. Me, I’ve mostly just tried to not let it all drive me into craziness. It’s mostly worked, mostly.
