My health is Declining and Stress is Increasing

I cannot take this. The stress of having my mother living with us is causing me all kinds of illness.

I already have diabetes and kidney disease, but things are getting worse. I an now suffering from cold intolerance and cold sweats. I see the kidney doctor in 2 days and the endo soon. I have had some blood work and will be having more.

I feel as if I'm ready to jump out of my skin. I don't know if I will survive this. My husband says another year to year and a half we should be able to get her into another place (she is on waiting lists). What kind of health will I be in at that time? Will I even still be here?
