I'm Tired

by LuLu

I have a disabled child whom I love dearly. I have always been her caregiver. Would not change that.


I have fibromyalgia, spinal stenosis,other related issues. The problem is my elderly mother is in nursing facility, but she depends on me for everything! I have to take her shopping, on outings.

I ask her for a list of things she wants picked up so I can do in one trip, as I take my wheelchair bound daughter everywhere I go. Inevitably Mon will think of something she failed to ask for in a day or so. She calls every morning to see when I'm going to visit.

I dread her calls. Mom is in an excellent care home has no complaints but depends on me for company,enjoyment, social events,errands, etc. If I go grocery shopping or to see mom it takes a whole day because I'm slow and in pain.

Today, I couldn't decide what to do so I took care of my grown child and nothing else. I'm in my 60s. I highly resent my two siblings who do not help with mom so much I don't even want to talk to them anymore. I feel overwhelmed.

I still have a home and husband (not the father of my child who is 35 by the way) to look after. I sound boring I know. I just wanted to tell someone!
