So I'm 29 years old and had a brain tumour removed as a child and my parents would not let me learn how to drive a car or how to cook. They told me if I tried to learn on my own, they would kick me out of the house. When I was 18, my mother would not let me get a job so I didn't enter the work force until the age of 21. Right now my mother has very serious heart problems that haven't been diagnosed yet and my dad is losing his mind. Today he forgot about his work meeting, forgot to take his umbrella home from the hospital and forgot one more important detail while we were on his way home. My dad does not forget things. I think his mind is going haywire. I don't know how to manage the house because my parents would not let me do anything while they were normal and healthy. What do I do? I was thinking of hiring somebody to teach me how to cook, how to hook up the internet, how to drive a car and using the money my parents give me to do it.

Did they think they'd be around forever? I know you had a serious issue but they did you a real disservice by not letting you adapt to day to day skills. Was that your only tumor or major health problem?0
