Hi Everyone, It's me again! For those who don't know my situation, I'm still waiting on disability claims. More importantly perhaps; one of my parents is very ill (not with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome like me, something different) and they fight all the time in a pretty small house. A lot of screaming and yelling. I'm just so run down from this, whenever I have hope regarding CFS my family ends up tearing itself apart and stressing me out to an extent that I can only describe as really terrible. So it's hard to keep hope, even though I know I need to. Even though sick and therefore I should be understanding, I can't help but feel at times that one would just go away, even die since it is so overwhelming to take all of this family drama always threatening to erupt at any time. Also I have no friends or relatives where I live nor near where I live. Has anyone had a similar situation? I don't really know what to do. It feels like my heart or lungs are being crushed sometimes during and after this large and very angry arguments. Of course that isn't happening, but by the feeling of it whatever is happening can't be that good at all. I am sort of surprised that none of the neighbors have called the police, but there is a little bit of seperation between houses so maybe they just don't hear it. What would you do? I feel completely sequezed in a vise by this situation. I keep thinking, if only I wasn't sick, but of course that isn't really a solution but more just another complaint. Can anyone relate or give advise? My parents are far past listening to me. What should I do? Thanks Everyone, john ps if you think I am handling this in a poor way go ahead and tell me, preferably also with why and how. I feel awful having to depend on this people financially but what else can I do?
