    Okay, so my mum had a pretty bad fall, a few months ago, and broke her leg. I was obviously helping a lot more around the house, but recently I've been working everyday for about 8 to ten hours, and then when I come home she's constantly asking me to do things like on sunday i came home from being on my feet from 6am til 6pm and I was tired and cranky, and she was getting ready to go out on the piss, and everything she wanted jewellery, another drink, shoes, straighteners, help doing her hair it was Will you do this? Now she can magically walk when she goes out on nights out but can't do anything at home, even my dad who works longer shifts than me is getting fed up with her b.s., then when my older sister comes home for a bit she completely runs me down and says she does everything and I do nothing, now I do the dishes, the clothes wash, the general cleaning after going to work and doing all that for 10 hours, it would be fine if I got a little thanks but I don't , it's just constant " you don't do anything" and when I try to defend myself it turns into a huge fight, am I being stupid and ungrateful?

    Also for reference I'm 20, I pay rent, I work as a cleaner, and do 8 to 10 hour shifts everyday.
