Anyone finding it hard to deal with family and other issues on top of menopause. My mother passed away six yrs ago and my father has put a huge burden on us since about me and my sisters not being in the same country as him and complaining about everything. He has rung and complained several times a day each year for 6 yrs. In the first few years after it happened it was truly horrendous. I have only been able to visit once a year cant bear it but feel v guilty. My best friend is seriously ill and its not looking good for her at all and my young sister needs constant support and rings incessantly. If Im not exposed to other peoples problems I can just about manage but being surrounded by negativity on an hourly basis is making me shrivel up and is killing all hope in me - I cant seem to escape other peoples issues. Every time I start to feel a bit positive I get another negative update or graphic detail about various problems. I feel like cutting all ties with everyone sometimes. Its difficult when there are these life issues on top of menopause as friends and family dont see it as an issue.
Despite menopause symptoms I still feel like I could build a new chapter in life but people around me just drag me back down and cutting ties will fill me with guilt...
Anyone feel like packing a case and going to start something new?!
