I feel like i can't cope with the constant demands of my family. My husband has been diagnosed with MS now for 4 years and over the last 18 months his symptoms have gotten much worse. I am now his full time carer. He is only 44 and I am only 42 I think we are going to have a long hard road ahead of us. I have 3 step children the youngest being 15 and going totally off the rails. She lived with us for a while but decided we were too strict because we wouldn't let her stay out til the early hours of the morning getting drunk so she went to live with her mother. She still never gives us a moments peace though and between running to the hospital for various suicide attempts over the last year and being lifted by the police for being drunk and disorderly we don't know if we can help her anymore. My step-son is 21, still living at home and hasn't been to work for last 4 weeks because he can't be bothered. And my 20 year old step-daughter is trailing our 2 year old grandson up through the gutter with a different girlfriend in her bed every other week. We look after our grandson every weekend which is also at times an added burden although I love him to bits sometimes its hard to look after him and his granda at the same time. My own 2 daughters are stuck in relationships with men who both have a serious drink problem. My father is an abusive alcoholic and at the age of 66 my mother has just left him. She has had to rely on me quite heavily recently as well to help her move etc. I myself am currently on anti-depressants and am consulting a clinical psychologist and am currently receiving physio treatment for a badly damaged shoulder due to a road traffic accident almost 2 years ago and the constant helping my husband up and down. I don't know how I keep going sometimes.
