This has been an emotional and frustrating couple of weeks for me. I don't want to go into too much detail. Let me just say that the courts have finally settled my dad's estate. The case has been in the judicial system for 8 years! And while the outcome was originally what we felt was in Mom's best interest, that is no longer the case. A lot has changed in 8 years.
In simple terms, I have to choose between my future financial security and, basically, my sanity. Neither have a lot of value at this point, but it is a serious question. And this is where the emotions and frustrations come into play. I want to do what is right for everyone but there is no right answer. There is no way for it to be right for anyone.
I just wish that life had a 'none of the above' option.
