I was 'volunteered' by my by sibling to care from my parents
My parents are steadily declining in health, and I've been designated as the person to lead the caregiving responsibilities. I feel like I've been blindsided.
Six weeks after giving birth to my daughter, my mother had a stroke. I feel like I can't focus on my own family because several times every week there's another health scare, medical need, trip to the ER, pending surgery, problems with doctors, problems with insurance companies, etc.
This is the hardest thing I've ever gone through. I feel sad and I feel angry. I feel like I'm aging at an accelerated rate because of the stress and lack of time and focus to take care of myself!
