ladykay Posted August 29, 2008 Report Share Posted August 29, 2008 My name is Kathy, I am 42, I have been married for 23 years to a loving husband and I have 2 grown children in college. So far so good. 5 years ago my mother and my stepfather decided to by a peice of property in Tennessee. They told us they would give us a peice and we could put a home on it. They bought it as an investment. A year later they decided to sell there home in Florida and move next door. So far still ok. This is where the problem comes in. Since the day they bought the property we, me and my family have worked hard to clear the land and do anything that they requested. To this day we have never received title to the land under our home.They have held it over our heads and used it like a power thing. Our friends are not allowed on the property to come to our home. I am not talking about wild crazy people, just regular hard working people. My stepfather has turned so bitter I can not deal with him anymore. Both my mother and my step-father treat my husband like dirt. My husband is a hard working self employed roofer that works 6 days a week and has a very good rep in the community for the man that he is. We all spend as much time as we can taking care of whatever needs to be done around here, but it is never enough. The property is perfectly groomed. My son was recently told that he has hep c, not because he does drugs, but because he was playing basketball one night and dove for the ball, fell and came up with a needle in the back of his arm. They don't think it is a big deal and when he is tierd and sick he should be out working on the perfect property. My son doesn't have insurance so the only thing we can do is try to keep his numbers down to keep the damage as low as possible.My stepfather is verbaly abusing my mother and the are both getting drunk every night. The have hurt me and my family so many times by the things the have done and said, most of the time when they are drunk. My mother is 72 years old and getting very frail, I don't know if it is alzimers setting in or Vodka for which she hides and drinks every night. I have tried going to my stepfather and talking to him about her heath, because she has falled and broken her face in five places and he just let her go to bed.He told me it was none of my business and never to bring it up again. I can't sit back and watch her kill herself and watch him verbally and mentally abuse her. I have tried talking to her and letting her know that I was here for her, but she denies everythig. I wish I could just move away, but we have invested everything that we have in our home and I can't walk away. But I can't live like this anymore.:confused: Thank you for listening....
