Imagine this: You're dealing with your own emotional struggles, and then you're asked to take in a family member rent-free. Sounds tough, right? 😓 Well, that's exactly the predicament one woman found herself in when her husband's brother, who suffers from seizures, needed a place to stay. The twist? She had previously asked her husband if her own brothers could stay with them in times of need, and he had said no. Now, she's left wondering if it's her turn to say no. 🤷‍♀️
