I am what you call burden bearer. But, I am tired. I am scared to talk to anyone close because I dont want to burden them. Anyone just willing to talk. About anything? I'll be on and off.

I have 10 cats I rescued, 4 dogs,, a neighbor who moved 1200 miles with us so I could take care of him. A mom who lives with me because her house was falling down, a friend who lives with me because she was homeless, an adopted daughter, I have a chronic progressive neurological disease among other things and a husband who likes to sleep. That is the beginning. Just the beginning. I have none I can trust with my burden.

I. AM. TIRED.

wow that is a lot to be going on for anyone
well done for helping the animals and everyone else but who is supporting YOU?
I couldn't cope with that many people to care for
we will listen here and support but you need some support IRL too
do you have any friends who can support you? xxx

do you want to talk in more detail?
I was wondering if there was any kind of carers support where you are?
people who care for others need to look after themselves before they can help others
im so sorry you are going through so much
I promise I care xxxx

I mean therapists. Lol. I dont feel comfortable with paying someone to listen to me. Just want someone to care. But, I dont want to burden anyone like I am burdened.

you aren't burdening anyone if you ask for help ,we all need help sometimes x
if you think about it ,how can you help others if you don't feel mentally well yourself?
do you ever have time to do anything nice for yourself? xxx

I cant. I spend all day in bed now. I've been in the hospital 9 times this year. But withing a week of being released people come to me and ask, beg, for help. I'm stuck.

I have no one that are capable of helping me or recognizing I need help, too. I'm lost. Just want to sleep, but I cant. Stuck is the best word.

its not the same as having someone IRL to turn to but this place has saved me in the past and been all I have
I firmly believe that things can change for the better
