OMG...I feel for you and know exactly where you're coming from. We take everyone else's troubles onto our shoulders. And they never truly appreciate what we're doing for them or giving up for them.
But beware... Because of my doing this for so many years, my BP was "clocked" at 187/88 recently. And despite the fact that I have lost weight and eat properly...I am now (as of this past week) on BP meds.
I have had to learn to separate myself and my own wants/needs from everyone else's. This is now about MY survival... They'll have to all tough it out themselves from now on.
Including my recent "ex". After all these years...yeah...
Move on. We can do it together.
Life is a hoot...and it just gets "hootier" every day!
