Over a number of years I cared for my late father and then my late mother until her passing around a year ago. As much as I tried for it not to happen, my life became about being a carer. I have one sibling who didn't assist so it was a very intense, unrelenting experience being a carer. I loved my parents very much and am glad I was able to be there for them in their final months and weeks. However, now that they're gone I feel incredibly lost. I expect that's normal as my whole world and existence has shifted, but I am finding it pretty tough to move forward. I went back to work about 6 months after my mom's death and that's helped to give me structure. I feel like not only am I struggling with grief but there is a huge sense of 'ok I can do whatever I want now because I have the freedom to...but I don't know what I want' and that feeling never seems to lift. There's a mountain of sorting out to do with regards to the estate, lawyers and belongings etc. but my feelings of being lost extend beyond the stress of that to 'holy moly what do I do with the rest of my life now?!'. Single, ex-caregiver, mid-30s, not where I want to be but no idea where I want to be either. This is 'normal' right?! I've thought about seeing a therapist to see if I can learn how to work through things. I guess I feel alone and for the first time in years no-one needs me!
