A little bit of history, I've had issues with my older sister for most of our life.

You need to find a way to be OK with your decisions and then move on instead of allowing yourself to become so stressed you make yourself ill.

The bottom line is, you don't have the budget to donate toward the up keep of the house at this juncture so, I wouldn't even engage your sister in that type of discussion(nor would I discuss it further, with your DD). I've heard of scenarios where silbings buy out the others percentages of the home but in those cases, the parent was already deceased. Being that your mother is still alive, I'm not sure how that would work. I wonder if there are any area estate attorneys who might give you some free legal advice?

How about this to boot:

Thank you all...unfortunately I should never have vented to my daughter...and in turn trying to explain what the doctor said to me in an email (that she refused to read) I learned a great lesson...I can't trust her either...although I am good for the monthly check and because she didn't like what I said (she said it was a childish attempt to piss off my sister) when I wanted to call my sister and say hey maybe you should have your son pay rent or maybe get someone in there that pays rent...but I didn't do it and my daughter attacked me as if I started the entire scenario.

Apparently my sister is allowed to do whatever she wants and whoever she can hurt (which is me as always) but I can't say a word. It nice to have the support of my only child left - when I've supported her in everything she has does whether I agreed or not...and she treats me like crap. I know now I can never confide in her, because she just repeats what I said to her cousin, who will repeat all back to my sister, and she'll be thrilled i"m fighting with my daughter, because that is the way my sister is..vindictive..

Thanks for all the suggestions, I contacted my daughter to make up with her.

You're not going to like my reply RE: facebook, but if I were you, I would just ignore it.
