 How old are you agent d?  What is your job?  Do you have other family members that can help with your father?

Though I've never been the primary caretaker of a parent, I have felt directionless several times in my life.  When I first got out of college, I didn't know what to do with my degree.  I couldn't even find a job for a while and got depressed.  Then later, I had to figure out what I wanted to do after my job lost funding.  I went back to school and am currently happy with my job.  I think it is natural to feel this way sometimes in life.

so im discovering now one of the perils of having a girl gamer as a girlfriend. we have been doing the ff14 story together and keeping our levels close. then one day while i was at work she grinded fates all day and gained like 4 levels on me. she got ocd about getting the gear she wanted from grand company. when we are doing quests she will B-line for fates. her attention is now split between me and the game. though she's a person that shows her love more with her actions than her words she has a knack for knowing when i need to see them.

@Cluelesswonder

28 years old. I work as a freelance stagehand and audio/video installation tech, neither of which are currently in huge demand so work isn't pouring my way. In regards to my dad, he isn't crippled (technically), but he is considered disabled. It's not so much that it's being a caregiver, but more like he can't simply maintain his own standard of life on his own easily. It's things like buying groceries, cleaning up, and maintaining his "job" as neighborhood handyman (I should mention my father and I work together as A/V installers) that I have to be there for. He can feed himself and cook for himself, but his condition.has made it difficult to do anything physical for more than a few hours a day. His issues are also degenerative so unless someone can come up with miracle cures for diabetes, old age, and physical deterioration of body parts, it's only gonna get harder. Diabetes and the associated diabetic neuropathy has really destroyed alot of his ability, and though he has addressed it and now has it under control the damage is done.

To be quite honest, he's a bit of a medical enigma. His level of diabetes was considered pretty bad, but he doesn't need insulin. Though his doctor said he oughta be cripple by now, he can still walk (lumber is more adequate) for all intents and purposes. He recently had to have stents placed due to hardened arteries, but the doctor told him his heart was actually quite strong for all the crappy lifestyle choices and negative factors he's faced. I still giggle about how when he went in for gallbladder surgery (which nearly killed him due his gallbladder being....well shit), he came out of his anesthesic almost fully lucid and aware of what was going on....while they were stitching him up. He's a stubborn brute for sure, but that's part of where the fear comes in. The idea of him being left alone and god forbid he lost his footing and could not get himself back up, I'm sadly certain no one would even come to find him. It's possible I am just using him as an excuse to continue being a 28 year old kid, but I know how I feel.

Agent D., looks like our situations are pretty similar. I don't know how much it will help: but I understand. And I admire you kinda have a plan to change things. I haven't gotten that far yet...

My future scares me in that way.

My family is small and I am by a good margin the youngest. As of yet, chances of a wife & kids are pretty low.
Meaning I'll probably end up old and alone =/

I have friends that were in the Air Force and loved it. One was a nurse and was stationed in Japan for years. I wouldn't view the armed forces as a cop out but rather as a jump start.

Agent D - That is a tough situation you are in.  Have you discussed it with your father?  How does he feel about it? 

Annubis - Please tell me you don't really feel that way.  Unless you are 90, I think I will have to disagree with you.

Me and my old man don't discuss feelings. Hard enough to get him to divulge details about work related things, nevermind personal issues. I can barely get him to look at a strange bump or something on my backside when I ask. Dealing with problems that are of our own design are rare in my home. Anyone elses, no problem.

Well, it's a reality. Assuming nothing weird happening, I'll be the last member of my family alive.
Meaning, unless I get a wife and kid(s), Christmas will be pretty shitty when I'll be 60+

Heh, frankly anuubis, by the time most of us hit 60, I expect either world war 3 to screw most of us over, a full revolution of the internet and how things are run regarding it and most related aspects to it, or some dimwitted fool in the presidents chair decides to blow up iraq (let's call him George W. Jr.) and in turn gets the entire world to hate and destroy america turning us into a third world country in a year or worse, same dimwit declares war and accidentally blows up the world.

I am oddly negative today.

Man. I know I've said this before, but...

Everyone I know from highschool is getting married and having kids, and I'm just sitting here with a fuckton of money and videogames.

I'm pretty sure if I had an significant other they'd just complain about me going to the grocery for snacks at like one in the morning.

--- edit ---

I was going to talk about my parents but I don't want to after all.

I was going to talk about other things but I forgot what I was talking about.

I am a chair.

reading all this is getting me depressed(it doesn't take much), but yeah I'm in a similar situation working part time trying to find a job to put my degree to use, without much success so far. Iono, I have this tendency to fear the future, but it's looking uncertain and I'm not the go-getter type offline.

All right, we are going to use a fan brush here and uh why don't you take some hunter green and we are going to put a happy little bush right down over here in the corner there and that'll just be our little secret and if you tell anyone that that bush is there I will come to your house and I will cut you.
