I am trying not be angry or resentful, but it is not working. I am the oldest of 4 children, and took a leave from my job to care for my dad when he was dying. I did everything, and I am glad I got to spend as much time with him as possible.
But now I am trying to take care of my elderly uncle who depends on me. He is stubborn and will not allow assisted living care. I cannot come over and clean his house, and his doctor's appointments are mounting. He is a widower with no children. I have missed work to care for him and spent vacations caring for him after surgery, but I also have health problems, and find it hard to take care of myself.....he lives about 7 miles from me, alone, and I am having difficulty juggling work, my household, and time for him. On top of it, I am feeling extremely guilty.
I am glad there is this website where I can see I am not alone.
