I am the olderst of 3 girls. I am the go to daughter and the daughter who is most involved with the health and the REAL goings on of my parents.
Asking my sisters is not an option. I am unmarried with no children. My well being is now suffering because of the worry and anxiety it has caused. I am also always to blame and unappreciated. I do not want appreciation from anyone. But being disrespected because everyone thinks all I do either just " happens" or my parents thing " they actually do it themselves" . Is a huge issue for me.
If they were younger I would move further away and have totally autonomy. But they are getting old fast, and although they don't think they need me, I believe they do.
I am trapped.
Any suggestions. I rather be ignored than critisized. Maybe I do just go. Yes they are old. But I am now being treated as I was when I was a rebellious teen ager. And the unhealthy childhood caused me depression, and eating disorder , dropping out of school, and a fight like h*ll for a successful life.
I am 50 and I cannot allow the last 20 years of my life to mimic the first 20. Not to mention it is now posing issue for me socially and career wise.
