Oh, what a shitter JC. Who said this to you, your mum ?

You can't be held responsible for your illness, let alone your fathers illness. I doubt if a reasonable healthy man wouldn suddenly have a heart attack when learning that their son was ill.

But anyway, we must remember that our parents, who we used to think of as gods, are only human too - and prone to the same agitation, outbursts, rages, depression, anxiety, that we are. The situation is difficult for all of them, not just you, and things are said that are never really meant.

It's hurtfull, I know, but I'm sure she didn't mean it. I'm right there with you with the living with parents thing. Although my parents, while hard on me, have always been supportive with my problems.
