Im so sorry bee. It’s soooo frustrating to see people you love just literally ‘give up’ on life. At least that’s the way we, outsiders, view it:

If you wanted to live a good long life, health would be a priority. Taking care of your body is essential, and you’re feeling the stress of their bad choices. 

It’s shit that you are the only one home to take care of them….pretty selfish of your siblings, but everyone is entitled to their own lives. Including YOU.

You can’t do this forever…especially after marriage… you need space from this.

ughh, that sounds really awful. I’d definitely try to get your mom in for a second opinion. In the end though your parents are adults and they are their own responsibility, you can’t live your whole life around taking care of them. Have you talked to your other sibilings about helping at all? Even though they are out of state they could try to call more often to check up on your parents and try to keep your dad on track with his health with reminders and such. Having more people to talk to might bring your mom out of herself a bit more.
