Sisiter with SZ. Lives on own but parents did all (shop, clean, organize, fransport). One parent had health crises, other now carer. Expectation that I replace & do all. Have own life, kids, job etc & getting resentful Started sayiing No.
Parents think they allowing her independance. They have taken on al the responsibilty. Without it, the management of her life will crumble like a pack of cards.

Good luck with your chat today @Bea, we're here if you need to come on and talk about it. It sounds like your parents are very sweet and focused on family.

Hearing you loud and clear about your questioning what is enabling or encouraging ....
A sibling should not carry the same reesponsibility or duty as parents.
