Sounds like maybe you don't visit your family often enough. Your mother shouldn't have played that card on you, though.
I think it's both FYL and YDI. How sad that your mom had to trick you into visiting her and your brother. Family is so important and you'll miss them when they are gone :(
faking death is never an appropriate card to pay. Even if OP never visited, under no circumstance does OP deserve to believe her brother is dying. I agree that family is important, but being someone's family is a title that is earned not given, and what OP's mom did proves that she has lost some of that right, or not earned it at all (I'm unaware of their relationship, so I'm not exactly sure whether this was a one time thing or not).
