For the last 5 years I have been helping my parents financially. My dad got laid off from his job back in 2009. He was out of for several months. He was able to collect unemployment for a while until he found a job. But being over the age of 50 it was hard for him to find a job and Mayberry could've tried harder. My mom had already retired and got money from Ssi. But financially they were unable to survive on their own and I have been helping them financially for the past few years. They wouldn't be able to survive without me. We live in the Bay Area and it's very overpriced. I recently got laid off myself and have been planning to move out of state up north with my boyfriend. But my parents can't afford to stay here without my help and I'm 32 and ready to have a life of my own with my boyfriend but my parents are holding me back and I don't know what to do anymore and it's effecting mentally.
