My girlfriend has health issues and spends alot of time back home. What do I do?

Ok, my girlfriend and I have been together for about 2 years and we had both signed a lease and got an apartment in CA about 8 months ago. I am 22 and she is 21. She used to work back when she was 16 but she began to suffer from panic attacks and sever anxiety so she had to leave her job. Since I have been with her she has not had a job. When we moved in together I was under the assumption that at some point she would get a job and everything would be fine. Well, she has had a lot of doctor appointments since then that are back where her parents live. So, she has spent about 5 of the 8 months that we have had the apartment, at her parents house. Another thing that keeps her at her house often is that she has a very old dog that does not have much time left. She grew up with the dog and the dog is her life, so she wants to spend as much time with it as possible. I understand that she has had health problems that I wont go into detail about but they are somewhat serious, but she also is somewhat of a hypochondriac. So, she always believes the worst is happening to her. So, in a day to day life as of now she spend most of her time at her parents house and I stay alone at the apartment. She has doctor results and appointments to make that she pushes off and doesnt ever want to talk about. I sit and wonder when all of it will be done and she can come back and we can both work and progress in our relationship. Sometimes I feel like im just a convenience for her and I take such great care of her. The bottom line is am i being a naive doormat? Or is my big heart doing the right thing in allowing her to spend lot of time home with her old dog and dealing with her health issues? Also, as far as her seeing me. I go to her parents house every weekend and once in awhile she will come back to the apartment for a week or so. P.S. We are also in the process of making her a resume. She wants to try to get an online job so she can have a starting point.

Wow.....this is rough. I have to admire your loyalty in the whole thing. I'm sorry to say, but she doesn't sound like she is, or will be a stable, reliable mate for you. It sounds like she has regressed back into some kind of childhood state... More
