Am I the Only One?

by Kristina
(Newark, CA)

Hi, I can't seem to find any help or even anyone with same situation. I was making bad decisions at one point in early adulthood and got into trouble.


So, then my mom suddenly dies and my world is shattered. She also was the caretaker of her 92 year old mother with dementia.

So now, since I didn't have a job I was put into caretaker position. So now I live at home with my dad who works all day and he's 60. I am 28 and Grandma is 92 we live together in her house.

I have an older sister who is married and just had her first baby. She's a stay at home mom. She doesn't help at all. I'm feeling like very vulnerable and powerless and scared for my future or lack thereof.

I feel like my dad's wife. I don't go out so how am I going to ever start a life of my own. If these people died I'd be left with not even a career. I'd have nothing.

I'm getting older and everyone I went to school with is married with kid of their own. I'm also tutoring and watching kids during the day...some neighbor kids. What do you think?
