My mum died the day after my birthday, it’s been 4 years but I still have no desire to carry on.
Her death was rapid, she was admitted to hospital & diagnosed with bone cancer at the beginning of April. She passed mid-May. I hae spent most of my adult life caring for her, my niece & stepdad.
My stepdad also passed away a year later. My niece left to go live with her dad.
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do, my function has always been to look after others.
I’m only here now to look after the dog my folks left behind and he’s old. Once he’s gone, I just don’t know what to do.
I’m up to my eyeballs in debt since no-one helped me with the funerals and everyone seemed to think it was okay to borrow and take but never give back.
I don’t see anyway out. Medications don’t help, therapy was a joke and I’m left in limbo.
