A Mum’s bond with her daughter(s) is so much stronger than a bond with a son. It’s just the way things work.

You do need to come to an agreement with you Sister that takes into consideration your current medical conditions.

You’re going to have to be tough on this one. Your primary responsibilities lie with your immediate family and looking after yourself. So, you’re going to need to be a bit selfish here. If roles were reversed and it was your sister who had MS, would you be pushing her to get involved?

Like I say, a tough one, but put yourself and your family first……
