Frustrated

by ushavadivel

I am a working woman unmarried and take care of my elderly parents. Father is 82 and mother is 76. My father has urinary incontinence, difficulty in swallowing and Diabetes Mellitus. Usually he is taking oral medications for diabetes but last week suddenly he was not responding and glucose was 469mg%.


I called the ambulance and took both to the hospital where he received fluids and insulin. My mother is frightened all the time she says while we were in hospital that she wants someone to be with her at home and she cannot manage with my father till I come back from work.

I felt angry because I am managing all the things on my own and added is my mother's words. I don't have siblings and I have to cope up all alone physically and mentally. Sometimes I think about what will happen to me in my old age. I cannot cope up with the role of caregiving at all times,please suggest.
