Feeling Guilty and Resentful

by Saz
(Liverpool)

I have one holiday a year I spend every other day looking after mum. Had to stop working to look after and also my mentally ill son who's 22. Left at one on Friday for Barmouth in Wales with the usual guilt was back home by 8.30 on Saturday as mum was taken to hospital.


My brother was as per stroppy when he called me on holiday because he had to step up. So now I'm back home while my partner and friends are all having a great holiday. My brother buggered off the minute he could and here I am crying feeling guilty and resentful. Am I selfish?

There is no way you should feel this way as you work hard providing the best way you can...EVERYONE needs time away either from work or caregiving or really anything else....please take care of yourself and know you are doing the best you can...best of luck
