After losing both of his parents due to Covid-19, Alex has to take care of his disabled brother. It has become too much to handle, and he and his sister are in a tragic family feud.
Unimaginable Tragedy Strikes
Alex has two siblings, including a disabled brother Max. Their parents were always Max’s primary caregivers, looking after him 24/7.
They Lost Their Parents
Tragedy struck during the COVID-19 pandemic when both of their parents passed away, leaving the siblings to look after each other.
Alex found himself caring for Max every day. He attended to Max’s needs, both physical and emotional, which became too overwhelming in the end.
A Desperate Plea for Help
He reached out to his sister, who lived in a different state, seeking assistance.
His sister, who is married and a stay-at-home mom with two young children, listened to Alex’s plea and understood the problem but decided it would be too much for her family to take Max into their home.
The Best Solution?
His sister decided that it was in Max’s best interest to find a specialized home to look after him, ensuring Max’s well-being while his siblings went on with their lives.
He Was Furious
Alex reacted with anger and disappointment as he wanted Max to stay with the family.
The siblings found themselves in a heated debate where accusations flew, and neither person could agree.
His sister wrestled with feelings of guilt and self-doubt, questioning her own choices and wondering if she was failing her brother.
In the end, his sister stood firm in her decision, knowing that it came from a place of love and concern for both Max and her own family.
She hopes that one day Alex will come to understand.
He Needs Qualified Caretakers
Redditors were quick to respond, with this user being sympathetic towards the three siblings, “A group home with qualified caretakers would be the best thing for everyone, and your parents should have set this up prior to passing.”
Some, on the other hand, didn’t like Alex’s handling of the situation, “your brother no longer wants to care for him so is trying to put this responsibility on you. He calls you heartless for wanting to put him in a facility which offers the best possible care, when he’s trying to get him out his own house – hypocritical.”
