I feel trapped in life. Any advice?
This year I brought my parents into my home to care for them. I had to do it for many reasons, to help with their financial problems, several health problems, etc, ( I'm an only child) and they just can't afford an AL. The problem is I am a young caregiver I guess, I'm 45 and I had a full life going on before. Now I feel the load is too heavy for me, having teenagers at home, a husband, parents with several health problems, cats, dogs, even a bipolar friend that needs urgent help sometimes! Everybody needs my attention and now I have started to feel resentful and depressed for helping everyone. I even had to quit my full time job to have more time for everybody. Why this things happen to women? I don't see men doing such a sacrifice. I'm not mother Teresa de Calcuta.
