My partner is caring for both of her parents and isn't focusing on our marriage. It's been going on for 7 years now and I'm feeling alone and frustrated. How do I cope with the stress?
Both of her parents are elderly, in poor health and deny needing help. It is clearly unsafe for them to live alone and they routinely call 911 for assistance. My partner and her siblings feel "there's nothing they can do" and rush over when necessary to handle the crisis of the day. I'm tired of feeling alone and frustrated. Our relationship is routinely shelved because "elderly parents who will die soon" trumps needy partner. I'm just at a loss - and this has been going on 7 years now.
