Can I Hold on any Longer as a Caregiver?
I have an 84 year old mother that I take care of. MY father passed away 6 years ago. I am 45 years old and I have been around my parents for many many years. I never got married or had any children.
Now, I have met a wonderful man who I want to spend the rest of my life with. But I keep questioning how can I? How can I juggle a personal life, taking care of my mother and working a full time job
I have 3 siblings and two live close by so they do help me out but I feel that I am being attacked by them when I forget to give my parent her insulin shot or I forget to give her medications...etc.
They are questioning me saying your mind is not where it should be and your not taking care of the responsibilities as a caregiver since I met my boyfriend.
Life is very very tough but is it wrong to say I want a life and I am just physically and emotionally tired in having the role of a caregiver?
