For those of you who don't know already, I've been a carer for my mum since 2016.
My mum is not physically disabled but has a lot of current health problems. She had a head injury in 2010.
She can be manipulative, and is very dependent on me to stay around for the extra money. I also help clean etc.
I'm now 25, have no friends or job qualifications. Everyone is encouraging me to leave, but I'm finding it very hard to breakaway!
I have a lot of trauma & depression, I've started to hear voices, such as "get a job" "get a life" how ironic. It sounds like a neighbour is harrassing me though, and it's happened at two different apartments.
All of my doctors want me on a medication, which can cause nightmares and fatigue etc. So I'd rather not take it!
I've been researching jobs, however i'm worried that if i leave my mum will have a worse quality of life, and be sleeping in the car. Due to lack of housing and money etc.
When we are living together, we can afford a nice/decent apartment to rent. But i'm kind of bored with my life and being isolated.
