Its been a couple of weeks since my mom fell ill. She's been laid off at her job since and now it's only my dad making the money (it's not a lot either). My sister has been leaving the house too much and I feel as if she's not supporting the family enough. Despite these problems not being mine, I feel as if I am greatly affected. I have finals coming up and it worries me to see my mom not being able to stand up. I'm so sad and I feel so alone. My friends don't know how to help so they keep telling me it's not my problem. But is it really not my problem...? I look forward to the future but it's so dark right now there's barely any light left for me to hold on. I am still going to keep breathing and bear with these ongoing issues. Good luck to everyone who is going through something similar and feel like they're in a dark place.
