I am a Nursing student on my winter break and I feel more stressed now than I did during school. My dad has multiple myeloma and just had emergency surgery this last Thanksgiving for diverticulitis, a condition that we didn't know that he had. He now has a colostomy and a severe abdominal wound that is cared for every day by a home health nurse. Everyday he complains about his conditions and says that he "won't be around in 10 yrs." He likes to talk about death all the time and insists that we figure out a plan for when he is gone. This is extremely painful for me because he has always been the person that I can turn to for support and now I feel like I can't talk to anyone. My mother is severely depressed and has lots of memory issues right now. She falls asleep and stays asleep as soon as she gets home from work. I have a younger brother who is a senior in high school who I sometimes talk to, but he is usually in his room or out with his friends to avoid the house. I have social anxiety and so I don't have a lot of friends of my own and I don't really feel up to making any right now. I feel very sad and alone all the time. I also have a lot of body image issues and have started binge eating almost every night. I always try to go to sleep early, but I can never fall asleep because I'm so worried. I like to think of myself as a healthy person who likes to run and eat a healthy diet but I've been gaining weight and feel very out of control. My father says that he likes to talk to me because he feels like he can't talk to many people, with my mom being so depressed and my brother being gone a lot. I can't handle the pressure anymore. I need a way to cope with the stress and turn my life around but I really don't know what to do. On top of all of this, I'm also contemplating changing into a different major because I'm so unhappy with Nursing, which obviously makes my father very sad. I'm pretty sure that I want to switch but I don't want to put anymore pressure on him right now. Please help me reduce my stress.
