Looking after Mother
My mother is nearly 88yrs old, I am sixty so no spring chicken, I have to see to all her needs she is more or less an invalid.
I feel sorry for my mother, but also for myself, I wish I could do what other women of my age are free to do....just the simple act of shopping, having a day out etc., but there is always mother to see to. She is very miserable,depressed and misses her old life, at the end of the day she finds it hard to except that she is old and there is no cure for old age.
It does effect me as I do get depressed and become very stressed not looking forward to Xmas on little bit, this has been going on for seven years so no wonder I feel tired, there is only me as I am the only child and how I wish I had had someone to share this responsibility with.
