From one of the therapies:
No time to spare my own children. I run out of all my energy with the housework, cooking, the medical needs of two elderly people, shopping ..feel exhausted and too tired to listen to the children.
Nobody in my family is appropriate to take over even one of the responsibilities. When there is something hard to do I am the only child, but they have always excuses to escape from things to be done.
I dont understand how people feel allright when someone is in trouble. They can do this by looking into your eyes. The only thing they think is to put their own affairs in order no matter how the others suffer from the troubles they cause.”
I am in contact with my therapist, hope he will teach me how to say “no”
and put my life in order.
