Nurse's Dilemma: Help or Walk Away? 🤷‍♀️

This devoted nurse found herself in a difficult situation when her toxic mother-in-law was diagnosed with cancer. Despite their strained relationship, she stepped up and helped with appointments, housekeeping, and more. But when her mother-in-law's ungrateful and rude behavior continued, she began to question whether she should keep helping or pass the responsibility to her brother-in-law. With her husband's support, she's torn between her professional instincts and her own emotional well-being. What do you think? Should she continue to help or walk away? Let's see what people have to say about this tough decision... 💬
