Where do I start? This all just happened to me yesterday and my head is still spinning.
Five years ago my mother passed away. My dad who was left behind was very ill, in and out of the hospital. I lived about an hour away then and came to see him several times a week at home or at the hospital. He couldn't take care of himself alone, so my family moved here to help him out. I have been commuting to work ever since. Two hours a day on the road. Anyway, my parent's Will stated that I will get the house after they die, since they had already given hundreds of thousands of dollars to my sister earlier on. When my mom died, dad put me on the title of the house, so that when he goes it would automatically become mine. My sister will get everything else that's left.
Now a little background on my sister:
She is 15 years older than me. We never had a sister relationship. I grew up with her children. I was only 4 when my niece was born. All my life I have been the victim of my sister's vicious games. As a child she continually tried to hurt my feelings and make me cry. I was devastated so many countless times. I never understood how my own sister could be so nasty. After all, I didn't do anything to her to hate me that much. As a teenager she told lies to my mother, trying to make her think that I'm just a no-good for nothing person. I was constantly criticized and belittled by her. If she had nothing to gossip about me, she would make something up to satisfy her evil need. Once I was an adult, the mental abuse continued on a regular basis. At first I moved far away from my family. I had read a book on psychology and learned that in order to avoid being her victim, I have to stay away from her and her circle.
Today I'm in a situation where I can't avoid her, because I live here with my dad and my family. I moved here to make it possible for my dad to stay at home so he doesn't have to move into a care home. Now she's been trying to manipulate my dad. She's telling him nasty stories about me to work him against me. It almost worked. Yesterday she dragged him to the notary trying to get him to sign the house over to her behind my back. Little did she know that I need to sign the document too. Her plan failed. After the unsuccessful attempt she sent her son to talk to me to see if I'll agree to add her to the title of the house. I almost had a heart attack, after I put the puzzle together and realized what they tried to do.
Here they were trying to take a knife and stab me in the back. Since that didn't work they wanted to give me the knife so that I could do it myself. I'm in a state of shock. Where do I go from here? I don't even want to see or hear from her ever again. I know she can't be trusted. What will she do next? I'm so scared and I feel totally helpless. My dad thinks that she'll try to drive me out of the house next. Her plan didn't work and she doesn't handle defeat well. I'm sick and tired of being harassed by her and her evil ways. It has taken a toll on me. I'm a nervous wreck. What can I do? Please help!!!
