Broken Family Ties
The original poster (OP) said that she lost her father when she was young and a few months after his death, her mom married a new guy. The new guy already had two teenage boys and didn’t want to raise OP because he never wanted daughters.
OP’s stepfather was wealthy and would spoil her mother and brother, but never OP. Her mother didn’t do anything for her either, she came to visit once a month and didn’t call on Christmas or New Year’s.
She graduated with a degree in computer science and landed a great job with an even greater salary. In the time since, OP got a better job with a better salary and was able to help her aunt and uncle renovate their house.
She was currently living on a pension from her ex husband and has developed serious heart problems. She asked if OP would pay for the surgery she needed, which was quite expensive. OP refused and said she wouldn’t feel good about it.
