Hi, I have a 39 yr old daughter who is a single parent. She has been out of work for 14 mos. She is now realizing her benefits are running out, so she is panicking. Her sister and I have bailed her out over & over and I am still paying off debt that is HERS. My husband wants to retire soon, we just can’t be plan B for her all the time. I am wondering if I need to back off and let her take over Her problems. Maybe I’ve done to much?? I do care but sometimes feel very used. Unsure Mom in RI
