My husband and I separated 7 years ago, so I'm now a single parent to the teenage daughters, one with ASD, I work my ass off to keep a roof over their heads, in a job I hate. I've spent 7 years in university to gain qualifications, but I can't move to where the work is because they don't want to leave their school/friends. All I hear is demands, "i want this, that and the other", I have no money for myself, no social life. My life consists of listening to them be ungrateful, driving them around to appointments, cleaning up after them, and spending the money I earn from a job I hate on them. I'd love to just run away, get the job I want, live in a tidy house, and maybe even go out once in a while. But, despite my rant, I love them and would never leave them. I just hate my life right now.
