The problem is my sister lives in a fantasy world. My mom used to call her alice in wonderland. I've explained to her my situation with money and nothing has changed. Last time the water bill came a month ago, she told me to pay the association instead of that. Its been a month and the water bill came in at $400+ which means she didnt deal with it. Shes making all these promises that her husband is going to help us, and i dont see him actually helping."... Like you said, i will just have to tell her "no" when i cant handle it anymore." Of course you will do as you see fit! But personally, I wouldn't wait on that at all. You're already doing and taking on more than your share and if you let people take an inch, they'll take it all. Sometimes I just have to have an honest talk with people like that and be nice, but firm. Fortunately, it does tend to work out really well. Sometimes people just need to understand limits to respect us. We're human, too! And we have needs and wants.
If the house is theirs and not owned by you in any percentage, then it should definitely be on your family members to deal with the association. Legally, it would be on them anyway.
I really wish i could move in with a family member that doesnt mind cats, just so i can get on my feet once and for all. But unfortunately thats not possible,. I had to stop paying the cards i had, to help with the house, and also to deal with my medical bills. I keep getting calls from creditors and i know thats not going to go away. I've read up on it and know it can get to the point that im sued. All the extra money i have goes to utilities, or to save for medical stuff.
I know everyone is struggling financially right now in general. Just feeling overwhelmed.
