My anxiety is getting the best of me. I can't seem to start the day without having a crying fit first. Every day, two or three times a day, I fall apart. I can't seem to deal with even the smallest little difficulty. Life has become severely difficult for me. Just facing walking out of my bedroom has become a chore. I used to be an active , happy person. But now, I am a total mess. Nothng makes me happy anymore. And I don't know what to do. I know this is having a detrimental affect on my youngest son. He's just a kid and he's trying to help his mother cope. I don't want to put him thru. this. It's too much for a young boy.' We moved in with my 90 yr, old father 3 yrs. ago, to watch after him. He's not a nice, or even clean person. It has been very difficult for my kids and I. Dad will not cooperate with us in any way. We live in our bedrooms. My bedroom is the living rm, dining, rm, office and closet. The other day there were 3 people and 5 dogs hanging out in my room. I have nowhere to go for solitude. And I really can't stand being around my father anymore. But, I can/t leave him either. We are all miserable here. But we have no way out. My youngest just turned 18 he will be leaving soon. I dread being here alone with my father. We really don't get along. I feel like I'm stuck in a rabbit hole.View Thread
