I'm 53 & raised my 3 kids with out any help from anyone. I have a son who served in the US Army for 8 yrs, a son who is the manager of Safeway, a daughter who is a nurse. I work full time at the same job for 14 yrs and when I get home I have to deal with my mother, who has dementia and lives with me. She has been living with me for 4 1/2 years. She has a negative, nasty, opinionated attitude. My son who has PTSD from serving 3 combat tours also lives with me. He has been living with me for 2 years. He lives for his video games and just started college. He ignores his grandma but she is nasty to him. I have to play mediator. My daughter is going through a divorce & I help her emotionally & financially. My house is always in need of repairs because it was built in 1941. My life plan went in the toilet when my dad died. I was planning to travel. That is no longer an option. My 3 week backpacking tour, which I had to cancel is a bitter memory. I live day to day knowing by the time I'm free, I'll be too old to do the things I always wanted to do. My mother physically is in good health despite her whining. I need to enjoy life again & have something to look forward to. I feel my life is not mine any more.
