Caregiver to 86 Year Old Mom...
Mom moved in with me and my husband about a year and a 1/2 ago she takes care of her bathing, dressing herself and feeding herself and doesn't complain, is pretty easy going and gets along w/my husband...so why am I complaining?????
I quit my job so I can take care of her so she won't be home alone. She uses a walker to get around as she has a balance problem. I make all meals, do all cleaning and errands. The last couple of weeks, I've been feeling depressed, lonely, no energy, bored any suggestions for me I feel like I lost my freedom....help.
Oh...I forgot to mention that my sister and husband moved down so she would be able to help me...well that hasn't happened, she only does anything until I ask, even though I say that I'm feeling burnt out and stressed, she never will say how can I help. It's all on my shoulders!
