Dear Dr. Batya,

I feel really squeezed. I am involved in my children’s and grandchildren’s lives but at the same time am now witnessing end-of-life issues with my parents. They have been unwell, and are no longer easy to have around.

My family feels I have become unpleasant to be around. Please help. – R.S.
