I Don't Know if I Can do this Anymore

I work full time and take care of my mother at nights and the weekends. She has some form of latter stage dementia combined with a traumatic brain injury from 4 years ago. I have a half hour to leave work and do any errands like grocery shopping and get home to relieve the caregiver. Thank God for her. On the weekends I don't leave the house and rarely leave her room.


I am responsible for everything and she continually criticizes me. She has constant UTI's which makes her delusional. No redirecting here. It doesn't work. i have been strong in my desire to not put her in a nursing home but I am so close to reconsidering tonight.

I am panicking because I have an entire weekend with her and the UTI. Thanks for listening.
