For the past seven years I've been caring for my parents almost 24/7 (with taking little breaks to go to school part time). My mother passed in 2016 and my father passed just a few weeks ago. I thought my father's passing might be easier as I was closer to my mother (although I was close to my father,too,at least in the past few years) but, in fact, it's been harder. There just seems to be a vast emptiness in me now that both my parents are gone. At first there was a certain sense of relief and freedom, but then I started asking myself, what am I now? What am I here for? I've self identified as a caregiver so much for so long that I started wondering if the world even needs me now. I am doing well in school, and I contributed chapters to a recently published academic book, but I still can't figure out what the next part of life is going to be. On top of it, I suffer from Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and clinical depression, so that hasn't helped. And I'm being more social and planning to join a bereavement group. But I still feel lost.
