I am very depressed and have been for a while now. My parents have been living with me for 18 years. All my siblings were married and living their lives. I was still living with my parents. My mother had a few strokes but her mobility was good. My father has had 2 heart attacks. When I got married my mother emotionally blackmailed me to staying with them when we were about to buy our new house. Now my parents have never got along as we were growing up. They were always arguing. My mother gets out of control when she argues with my dad. Anyway me and my husband ended up staying. I just don't know why I listened to her 19 years ago and have regretted it ever since. We did eventually buy our own house 4 years ago and my parents came with us because they are both in their eighties now and in bad health. I have 2 children now 13 and 7. My parents are making our life hell. We've never had any privacy over the years and now my children are suffering due to my mother always bickering about my father and how he treated her all her life. I work part time and also as their caregiver, I do everything for them. But my children arn't happy living in this situation. My mother is always lying on the sofa in the living room watching her channels on the tv. My children stay in their rooms after school. None of my siblings help in anyway because they think it's all up to me because they live with me. I want to live my life with my husband and children and my kids need their freedom too. Don't know if I sound selfish but I have cared for them for 19 yrs. Do I carry on? Because my parents not getting on and not speaking to each other is killing me inside, I just want to live a normal life with my little family. I need space. Should I move my parents out? I am still willing to do their chores for them but I can't live with them any more. I feel I need to put my kids first now. My parents chose to live together all these years even when they didn't get on. But it's causing a terrible atmosphere in my home. And I've had enough I need to live my life now before I go into further depression. Please help.
