Guilt of being a disabled parent.
I have been struggling for 5 years now with degenerative disc disease. I had a second surgery in Feb but I’ll forever have chronic pain.
Over the last year I had a few other medical issues which has resulted in me leaning on my teenage son more and more. I hate having to do so and have recently realised that I have become a burden and he has mentioned he won’t be able to leave home. Of course he will. Yes I have pain and ask him to help but ultimately I would have to adjust but how do I undo the damage of implanting that feeling into him? Any advice?
