Feeling Bad about the Situation

by Susie
(Banning, CA)

My mother is 90 years old, with dementia, she can't do anything by herself. Not even sit down.


My dad passed away 7 years ago and at that time my step siblings also took my mom. I was kicked out on the streets with nothing, or no one.

They put my mom in a nursing home. They took over her home everything. I finally got the home back after it was abandoned, destroyed, and just left to die.

But now that myself , my ,boyfriend,and brother got it back my mom wants to come home. I thought I could handle it but now that she has stayed the night I know that I can't.

There is one sister that is very good with her, but she has a life of her own, and lives out of town..So she can't be here too much. And even if she could my house is small.

So my mom has to go back today and I feel bad about it. It will take more time to get any help from the county.

Am I totally awful? Plus I don't know how to take care of her .
