  •  hi (13+ / 0-)

    i can understand some of what you are saying. for instamce that your dad stops taking care of himself everytime your mom returns to the scene.  thats called "toxic relationship" i think and from what i can tell it's not all that rare, in fCt it's pretty common.

    one thing (i hope) that can bring you some solace is that I AM SURE that you are a great angel in his life although he may not say it explicitly to you, and maybe you are even his reason to go on because you so obviously care and really give him love.

    You are 26 and i agree its time to make your own life (in spite of whatever disability you may have we all only get one life etc. etc.).  I think you should look for an Independent Living Center or some support group of folks that have your same disability and hook up with them for tips, support and ideas.

    You sound like a really great person.  I'm not even worried about you at all.  You will be fine.
