No Way Out...

Hi guys,

I'm in a difficult situation right now and could do with some advice.

My Mum died when I was young and my Dad is disabled. He's also recently been diagnosed with diabetes and now he's suffering from bronchitis I feel so sorry for him.

The trouble is it has now dawned on me that one day he is going to be too ill to cope on his own and will need full time care. I love him so much but just the thought of becoming a full time carer is making me feel depressed and lonely.

I know I sound really selfish but I don't know what to do, it feels like my whole future has been taken away before it's began. I have a boyfriend and more than anything I want a future with him, marriage kids etc but how can I do that if I can't leave my dad??

I feel so lost and I'm scared my life is pratically over. I can't tell my dad it would break his heart. Has anyone else been in this situation? What did you do??

Thanks for reading guys :)
