I've been dealing with my parents' decline for a decade. It has involved a lot of ugly stuff including alcoholism (both of them), verbal abuse, dad's dementia, among other things. Dad died a few days ago and mom is on an alcoholic bender. I'm grieving my dad but wondering now what lies in the future with her. Maybe another decade?
Do I have a future? Is this normal? Is there something I missed in the "Kid's Handbook" that your parents would destroy your life one day and leave you a damaged wreck, fighting for your own mental health and future?
Is anybody else so wrung out?
