I have a daughter 27 and a son 23. Each has some challenges - my daughter is a single mom with stress, etc; and my son has severe OCD/anxiety and is recovering from a year of being incapacitated by it. (He now is back to work and has a good psychiatrist, but struggles with not using alcohol in social situations.)Each often expects me to have the "answer" for their problems and seems to place blame on me if I don't. My daughter criticizes me and says I don't have time for her. Being single, I work two jobs and am doing all I can. I feel stress and pressure from all this and also pain from her behavior in particular. I see a counselor and we talk about boundaries. Does anyone have an experience like this?

I gave my 2 week notice last Friday 13th. Now to join you fine people in a life of leisure and nothing else to do but to look out for myself....is it just me or does that sound pretty boring? My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
