Im 26 living with my parents. I was forced to quit my job & studies to be fulltime carer for my sibling. I am going crazy being at home every day in isolation. My situation has forced me to have no social life as my parents depend on me for so much. They get to go to work, get out of the house and go get things but i am unable to do so. I get no break from these 4 walls. My car is breaking down and they wont help me get it repaired or sold or take it anywhere. I cry everyday. I also wake up with a pounding heart every morning from anxiety and because my parents are always fighting and get angry when they see me down. None of my friends understand my pain and most have ditched me because i can never hang out. I feel like im in prison in my own home its absolute torture all i do is chores everyday and get told off if im feeling upset or go on my phone for too long. If i need to go somewhere like the shops or doctors i have to ask if i can go and get driven. I cant date anyone because i cant go out often. I have nothing to look forward to and i feel like stuck, lifeless. If i ask to see my friends my parents make me feel guilty like im selfish all i think about is myself. Im emotionally and physically drained by the depression and anxiety. I cant finish my degree because it requires fulltime attendance. I had to close down my business too which i worked so hard for and cant continue until my sibling can return to school which could take years. My depression is a result of this lifestyle and I dont know what to do.
