Why Children are Made Scapegoats

by Sagar
(Berhampur, Odisha, India )

I am 25 now on brink of turning 26, I have my father aged 80 suffering from Parkinson's and dementia from last 5 years. I was born when my father and mother were 55 and 35 respectively. I have a elder sibling who works she is unmarried and thinks of being the same way for the rest of her life. She mostly stays at work , sighting work pressure and peak timings and all but honestly speaking she is just trying to sigh away from all the responsibilities that comes with caretaking.


Me and my mother who is 60 now take 24/7 care of my father who is completely dependent and lost his hearing and most of memory..

He is just like a stubborn confused and at times angry kid who thinks everyone is looting and trying to kill him. My mother an illiterate doesn't know much about the disease hence sees the possibility of him recovering.

She too is not gud in coping with health but somehow does most of the work . I being stuck at home just because he needs continuous care has made me feel unwanted and goal less in life. I haven't completed my chartered accountancy Course which needs lots of dedication and time which I am unable to give.
