It is very hard for me to be their caregiver because I have trouble understanding emotions and communicating with others. I am not able to recognize their needs and feelings. I am the son that lives near and actually do some help with appointments and errands. Dad and mom always believed I was a shy person not realizing I am struggling with this all my life. Dad gets upset when I am not in touch, even when I say I like to be alone. I had to lie to them when I go to therapy, I say it is a routine medical visit. If I tell my parents they will believe I am mentally ill, even I am afraid they will tell everyone.
