Caregiver Stress - I just came home and cried...

by Kim
(Arizona)

It is a little comfort that I am in company of others in taking care of my parents, but today I felt like I was going to break. I tried to make it a nice father's day, but my mother has dementia and she makes things so difficult. I have my own house to take care of, and I am not married. My brothers attitude is that since my children are grown and I am single, I have all the time in the world. I have a stressful, demanding job, and I have no time to distress after work because I constantly worry about my parents, and I am taking care of them almost daily. Getting them into assisted living is easier said than done! It is good to have a place to vent...

Caregiver Stress - Cry, You Will Feel Better
by: Anonymous

If there's anyway possible, take your Mom to your brothers and leave. You deserve a life, too.

Single and retired doesn't mean your life is over. He needs to assume some piece of the burden and feel it. I have felt the same way and want to scream. Escape from it is all that releases the stress.

Give brother the pleasure of 'how easy it is'.

You cannot go on like this, you will have a break down or a stroke. Nursing homes are not all bad. Some are actually quite nice. If he renounces all responsibility, realize you are killing yourself and you are the only one who can save you.
