Hi Everyone
iv had a lot of stress and anxiety over the past few years and the main cause is my family, i love them to bits and would not be able to live without them but living with 2 elderly sickly stubborn parents is no easy task..they know NO boundaries and no space and want everything their way.i work and cook and shop etc and i feel under appreciated and am being taken advantage off, the more i do the more dependent they are becoming..most days i am being told i do nothing and should go live on my own, but i know they would not manage on their own and feel very guilty to leave, also it is not feasible financial wise running 2 households, i am getting very tired and finding it hard to make time for myself, everyday there is something new that has to be done.my mum does not drive and dad does not take her anywhere so i have to, and it is draining as she constantly nags all the time, everyday. she makes me feel guilty if i have to go to the gym or meet friends and demands i take her out instead.she demands us to cook and feed her all her meals.she is capable of doing it herself but refuses to..i dont get any breaks and it has taken a toll on my health.i am hoping i find others who are in a similar situation like me so i know that i am not alone in facing these daily challenges with elderly parents..also would like support..thanks

Your situation is hard. I agree with seekjoydaily, especially about taking time for yourself. Also, you you said there are "NO boundaries" with your parents. You might consider reading some of the "Boundary" book by Cloud. They have helped me tremendously to establish healthier relationships with my loved ones and decrease my stress level. Here is one. https://bit.ly/2dm0y10 Hope this helps and please keep posting. There is hope!

@seekjoydaily hi.. Yes.. You are right.. I can get some help.. But i have a very dominating brother who puts a stop to it and never wants to listen or admit there are problems.. There is no help from other married siblings.. Duties automatically fall on to the unmarried ones.. Its me and my sister but its not enough as we both work and have to juggle things
