My mom died about 6 years ago. When my dad died in 1989 mom asked to move in with her for just a little while. She said it would help her get through the lonely nights. I lived with her about 6 months then a brother moved in. In 1991 I moved in with her "just for a little while".  I realized that mom needed the company for longer than just a little while so I stayed. Mom's dependence on me was complete. She did not want me to leave her side ever. Even if I went to another room she wanted to know what I was doing. This also meant that I stopped meeting friends and I basically spent all of my time with her. Then when she died I was lost. I went into the deepest funk I have ever been in. All I did was sit and stare and think. Housework was not done. Nothing got taken care of. Then about a year ago I realized I had to crawl out of the hole I dug for myself.  But because I had neglected myself for so many years I did not know what I wanted to do. So I got a job. Work had always helped me define myself before. But it was not enough. I was able to find this website because of a co-worker. I am just beginning to feel some life come back. As my brother tells me... baby steps, take baby steps.
