I don't know whether I am being dramatic or if my parents are really picking at me bit by bit. Lately my step dad seems to think I am doing EVERYTHING wrong, I really am trying to do my best, adjust as a family and work through things...but I am finding it extremely hard. Almost every night he comes home and asks my mom how poor of a job I did helping her today, it is almost as if he is looking for her to say...no, she didn't help me one bit, she went out with her friends or whatever else. And sometimes my mom sticks up for me, but most of the time she tells him I left her with everything or Im not being a good enough daughter or sister, or just a good person in general. It's very hard to explain the situation, but my mom does do a lot, she has an entire house to clean, dinner, 2 children, 1 of them only a few months old, laundry, everything a stay at home mom does I guess. She refuses to hire help (hey, isnt that what Im for anyway?) I desperately want to get a job and spend more time with my friends but feel very guilty leaving her with all of the work. I pretty much do the laundry, help with the kids, the dishes, make my step dads lunch, regular 18 year old chores I suppose...but sometimes its overwhelming because it never seems to be enough...and what my dad doesnt understand is that I do spend all day do these things because he comes home and there is laundry so he thinks I dont do it, but he doesnt get that it just doesnt stop. There are about 5 loads each day between our clothes, towels, the baby and bedding. My day is consumed with house work and being a second mother and wife...and its really starting to take a toll on me. I hate that I feel this way because I dont mind helping, I understand I live here for free and that its fair, but they make me feel so bad about myself because its never good enough and my dad is always making it out to be like I do NOTHING. Example: The other day there were 2 loads of laundry left and he got mad and he started yelling about how he has to go to work AND do the laundry and treats me like crap the rest of the night. I feel bad for making this into such a big deal because I know there are so many worse situations out there, but I needed to vent. Any advice would be great.
