Thanks, Muffled. And you're right. I do need to get some legal advice before I do anything I can't reverse.
I don't mind walking away from anything from my point of view. Even if I cared about the money, the yearly cost will eat up any equity anyway. It's just that Daddy specifically left it this way to protect her as much as he could.
You're also right about my being dragged down with her. There's no way I can be a big enough lifeboat for her and still stay afloat myself. Especially when she keeps poking holes in whatever help people send her way.
I'll call the attorney tomorrow to see what my rights and options are. Once I have more knowledge I should feel less trapped. Funny how when I felt fated to go through this I wasn't as anxious as when I realized I had a way out, if only I choose to take it.
No matter what I do, it won't be easy.
I so much want to remember the good things about my mother. There were a lot of good things.
