I'm 45 years old. I am an only child, and have been here to take care of parents. Dad has many issues, mom now has a few issues, and all i can do is obess over their well being.. I have been taking care of dad for 5 years off and on. Now dealing with my mother and her issues on top of that, is driving me crazy. I know I need to get my own life but its hard.. I feel guilty, like i have failed them by not wanting or able to continue to take care of them. I did see out help. I hope that helps me get passed this..
