Parents forcing me to go to Grandma's funeral.?
Before you comment on how awful this sounds, understand a few things. First of all, my grandma moved from Michigan (where I live) to Minnesota when I was only a few years old. She decided to marry a high school friend who abused her and stole her money instead of building relationships with her granddaughters. She only moved back here a couple years ago because of health problems. I had no interest in building a relationship with her because I barely knew her and I still don't, and she left us. My sister and I were always forced to visit her and I never enjoyed it, and spent every second wanting to leave. Now, she's stopping dialysis and killing herself. My parents expect me to take a 3 or 4 day trip out to Minnesota for her visitation and funeral. I'm in very competitive and difficult classes in school and even missing a day will set me back a great deal. My grades are struggling right now because I missed a day last week. I can't imagine the toll a four day trip will have on my grades. Neither my sister nor I want to go to this funeral, but my parents want us to.
