I am 28 and currently taking care of my mother who has end stage emphesema as well as fibromyalgia. I am a single mother of a 4 year old, working full time, and living with my mom (to care for her). My father passed away about a year. My brother has turned back to drugs to deal with the changes in our lives (he's in rehab and trying to get well which is a relief but he stumbles often). I seems like my every day is a constant struggle just to make it to the next. I just don't know how to deal with life anymore....I really just don't. I know I have to be strong for my mom and my daughter but I really feel like my world is crumbling piece by piece. I tried talking about these things to my doctor and his response was "well you've got alot on your plate - things will get better"............but they never seem to. I don't know where to turn or what to do. I am not at all suicidal - i know i HAVE to hang in there for my daughter. But, I am really wondering what to do with myself and my emotions. I guess i really don't know what kind of response I am looking for as all i can do is deal with my life moment by moment....I just needed a place to vent.
