I dont know what to do adult content

my sisters say i cant let my parents ruin my life but its so hard. my father is 82 and the most lovable person in the world... the problem is that he has alzhiemers and seems to think that my mother no longer loves him so he spends the day crying and trying so hard to keep her close. my mother is depressed because my 13 year old brother is a child molester who might have to go to jail for a year (not nearly long enough in my opinion) he still steals from her and lies all the time. because of this my mother spends all her time crying and pushing my father away. i dont know what to do. i know i cant fix the problem and would love to run from it but i cant because i am relying so heavily on my parents for so mych still. I use their car, credit card, and computer to do my homework since im still in school. i feel like i have to be at their becking call. but i dont know how to help.

  • Oh boy! That's a biggie! I understand u rely on ur parents but u cannot help their marriage. U have ur own issues to deal with besides them. Consider moving out. It sounds like ur too involved. Sorry

  • Oh, that sounds so rough... I'm so sorry you are dealing with this. I agree with just being there to be supportive. Its going to be hard, but it sounds like they need the mental support, and they're supporting you finacially. Maybe things will calm down a little when yoour brother goes to jail. Best of luck!!
