Non-Muslim Parent angry about my reversion to muslim from catholic

Mu' meneen Brothers and Sisters,

As Salaam Aleikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)

One of our brothers/sisters has asked this question:

I don't know what to do with my mother every time I am restricted from doing something as it is haram my mother blames my husband. She told me my religion is alienating my family which has made it very hard for me to not be angry with her. Part of the issue is my brother in law is very sick and my sister has asked for my help but my husband said I am not allowed to stay with him in there house just me and my brother in-law who has parkinsons disease and my sister is the one supporting the famiy and needs help. I want to obey my husband as he is a very strict muslim but at the same time am conflicted as my sister needs my help. Can you please help me with your opinion of this situation. my famly is not muslim only me.

In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is none worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad (saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.

Sister after marriage you must obey all lawful commands of your husband. He is perfectly right in not allowing you to stay in your sisters house with her husband. He is non mehram to you and it is not conceivable for a Muslimah to be alone with a non mehram. 
Of course your mother will blame your husband. You should not get angry on her but keep quiet and be patient. You are not responsible to look after your sisters husband as if you insist then you are putting your marriage at risk.
Remember the mercy of Allah swt who guided you to the deen of truth that is Islam. You have to let go something that is not your responsibility. Your responsibility and loyalty should always be your husband. So do the right thing with patience and wisdom.

Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.

Your brother and well wisher in Islam,
