well, i'm listening and here for you. your parents may not talk about how good you're doing, but it's probably because they know you're good, and they just want your brother to be on that same level. and like you said, yes, you're parents will always be caring about you, but it's just that a bad situation requires a lot of attention. it's hard to be a parent and give equal attention to all children, especially when one may need that extra eye on them. but yeah, i wish the best for you, your family, and their situation.
