Hey everyone. I'm in a tight situation here and this doesn't feel right.
My grandma raised me since I was 6 months old to this day as my father is a really selfish person that never cared about his family so I'm the one left in charge of my grandmother.
She has 3 kids, and I feel like they should do something about this and lift this huge responsibility that was put on my shoulders at this age. I've been taking care of her for 5 months now since her health condition started to decline really fast (she has cirrhosis and now dementia seems to make her really difficult to handle at times).
Her kids and her gave me her house which I really appreciate but I'd rather start from nothing than going further with this for months or years, I have a lot of plans with my life and I'm literally on hold right now because of this.
I don't want to sound selfish but I've been taking care of her for a long time as I'm the only one that's been living with her, but since her health condition got worse, this starts to affect me mentally and I do not like this at all, I can't even get out of my house for a few hours because she might need my help and I can't leave her.
What should I do ? I spoke with her kids about this and they said that me taking care of her is the only option as they have jobs and they don't have time. What I think that they should do is to pay someone to take care of my grandmother, even I would pay for this just to get over this.
Sometimes I feel like leaving my family and restart my life as I'm able to take care of myself and do well on my own.
I'd appreciate your thoughts on this.
P.S. I'm not from the US.
