Is 30 too late to turn your life around?

I really need a lot of help. I'm 30 and still 

live with parents. Before you judge, my 

father developed multiple-sclerosis; thus

my family never fully-recovered. I feel I 

never got a chance to learn a lot from him 

but he can't be a good-father; he's handicapped.

I also have my issues. I have stage 

2 liver-failure that I have to monitor

through no fault of my own. The doctors 

said it's steato-hepatitis - most likely genetic. 

Then, my parents required me to 

take care of my grandmother who 

died recently, so that took 6 years 

out of my life. 

So now, I don't know what to do? 

I don't know whether to go back to work 

in retail, finish a 2-year college degree 

or get a certificate? or start a business?

I'm not stupid by any means. I just don't 

want to be overwhelmed again as the last 

15 years have been traumatic for my family.

How am I supposed to move forward? Help!

    Find something that brings joy or gives satisfaction and then your world will open up.  It is never too late.  :)

    I didn't fall in to my niche until I was 25 and that is the average age most people actually start their careers after graduating college and going through the process of finding a job in the field they studied. I didn't graduate college and I didn't move out of my parents until I was 30. In your situation and because of things going on in the world right now I think your best course of action is probably to finish your degree.

    Retail isn't going to get you anywhere. A degree has a better chance of improving the quality of your life.
