I need to vent here. Recently I've had problems with my Dad over elder care and money. I have found the hard way he doesn't share and I am stuck with him because I am unemployed and jobs here are NIL. After 10 years, my Dad FINALLY admitted that we had a misunderstanding over

I am curious... how old is your father? Is he in poor health?

I think the best thing to do is, find a way to get out now (new job, new home) and let him fend for himself. Is he's not taking responsibility for his future, why should you? Could you move to another city, find a new job and start over? Save as much money as you can and come up with a game plan to get out of the house.
