A Feeling 99% of this World Will Never Feel
There are other siblings in this area. But they do not get involved with taking care of their mother. I am disabled with Epilepsy so I cannot work or drive. So they put this whole burden upon me. I cannot deal w/ it anymore.
It is not the physical burden it is the mental burden that is placed upon me. She is a 83 yr old wheelchair bound lady with Dementia. She has hallucinations, bad dreams etc.
I have lost 10 lbs. My husband wants me to visit our son for a week or 2. Why? Take a break from this nightmare grind only to return to The Same Ole Grind? It just makes the thought more permanent.
They are either too busy, traveling or make up some stupid excuse. What sickens me the most is I am taking care of a 83 year old lady w/ Dementia.
And when I get older I will probably get Dementia because I have a bad head injury. I just want her to move on to one of the other siblings. It isn’t the physical burden it is the psychological burden that is placed upon me.
I do know it is 3 times as hard to take care of a patient with Dementia to a patient of normal health. So all I am saying I have lost my identity and my privacy. It isn’t to hard to understand and I am not being selfish it is the others who do not help me who are selfish!
