Forced to Look After Her Dying Aunt Who Called Her ‘Dirty and Annoying’ and Made Her Question Her Paternity

A Reddit user told how her family wants her to take care of her aunt and let her stay with her while she is recovering from illness. The only problem is she has a poor relationship with this mean-spirited aunt who never treated her well when she was a child.

She Was Just Mean

During her childhood, Tia’s aunt made it clear that she did not like children and actively avoided events that involved them.

She told Tia and her brother that children are dirty and annoying and that they only stop being a nuisance when they learn to act like adults.

While this sentiment may have some truth to it, it was hurtful for her and her brother to hear as elementary schoolers.

What was worse for Tia was how her aunt talked about their mother, who has been single since their father left them for his affair partner.

Tia overheard her aunt, commenting that her mother was promiscuous and selfish for having children.

She even insinuated that their father may not be their real dad, which is why he left.

When Tia was 10, she finally told her mother about these comments.

As a result, her mother refused to be in the same room as the aunt, and they haven’t had much of a relationship with her since then.

Tia had little contact with her aunt for 7 years after she moved away from the neighborhood where her mother and her grandparents lived.

When Tia turned 18, her aunt attempted to reconnect, but she kept the contact minimal.

Recently, her aunt was hit by a car and has been experiencing health problems, requiring frequent hospital visits and physical therapy.

However, her house is far from most health facilities and she lives alone, with no one to take her back and forth.

In Need of Help

As she doesn’t have the money to purchase a new house in a more convenient location and doesn’t want to sell her current house due to her dogs and future plans, she is in need of help.

Anger Strains Relationships

Tia’s family members, including her mother who are still angry at the aunt, cannot help with transportation or housing.

Her aunt has approached her for help, but Tia is hesitant to take her in.

Fear of Family Conflict and Gossip

She does not want to care for the dogs and fears that living with her aunt may cause family conflict or lead to gossip about her personal life.

Tia states that if she had a closer relationship with R during her childhood, she would consider helping her out and letting her stay with her.

However, Tia remembers when her aunt described her and her brother as “annoying” as kids.

She wants to punish her aunt for these comments and not let her stay with her.

Tia then told her aunt her decision not to let her stay with her because of how she was treated when she was younger.

The aunt was angry with her and said she was being selfish for not helping her out.

Family Support

Her mother and her brother support her decision, but Tia is now hearing from her grandparents that she should extend an olive branch and help her aunt out in her time of need.

Should She Reach Out?

When Tia wrote this story on the Reddit thread, many comments poured in.

Many users agreed with Tia’s stance in not letting her aunt come and stay with her. They kept referencing the quotes she had used to describe children and thought this was the best way to treat her after all of that.

One comment stated, “You should just tell her that people recovering from injuries ‘are dirty and scream and annoy everybody until they can take care of themselves again’”

Another wrote that they were appalled by these statements, but sadly, they see this behavior from so many childless adults. The comment went on to say that these adults need to realize that one day they will all need someone younger to help them out. And by treating the younger generation poorly, these childless adults are setting themselves up for a sad life as they age.
