Imagine spending your entire childhood caring for a sibling with special needs, only to be told that it's your responsibility to continue that care for the rest of your life. This is the story of a man who, after years of sacrificing his own dreams and desires, finally took a stand against his family's expectations. When his parents passed away, he was faced with the decision of whether to take in his autistic brother or arrange for professional care. What he chose has sparked a heated family feud, and now he's questioning if he made the right choice. 😰👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

A Lifetime of Caretaking, but Was it Enough? 🤔

After spending his entire childhood caring for his autistic brother, this man finally took a stand against his family's expectations. With his parents gone, he chose to place his brother in a reputable care home rather than continue the care himself. Now, his family is furious, calling him heartless and insensitive. Even his wife offered to have his brother live with them, but he refused, not wanting to return to a life of constant caretaking. As the family feud rages on, the guilt and doubt are weighing heavily on him. Let's see what the internet thinks of this situation... 🧐💭
