I am 26 year old single mother living back at home with my parents. My mother has severe depression problems as well as other phobias. TO make a long story short I have a lot of built up anger when it comes to her "downs" and things that i witnessed when i was a lot younger. My mother always seems to blame my father and I for her depression. And even though we all know that it is just her way of trying to find her own outlet, it hurts just the same and i feel i myself am losing my mind. Meds don't work for her, nor therapy. And right now situations are not good in my home. My father hasn't worked for about 5yrs, my mom can't work and I moved in to help with bills and such, out my lil sis thru college and try to raise my daughter. All on a part time job. My mother blames it on me that my dad is not working saying that if it wasnt for me being there there lives would be soo much better and she wouild be less stressed and therefore less depressed. I feel when it comes to them now I can't do anything right. I try to help but its never enough and I myself am tired. HEr depression has really affected my life, and at her request i have spent so much time lying to cover up her problems that it doesnt help anything. If i wawsnt living there, maybe i would feel better but as that is not an option right now, i am lost. I want so bad to let go of this anger i have toward her but i cant seem to let go. Please help
