I’m overwhelmed, tired, resentful and at this stage ready to put my mother in a nursing home because I work full time and have a job that’s 24/7. This is affecting my life drastically. My husband works out of town and brothers don’t live here. It’s becoming too much.
My mother is stubborn, mean and won’t listen and is becoming increasingly aggressive.
She has dementia that is now past stage 1 and ending 2.
She’s diabetic, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and walks with a walker.
She was independent but had surgery to remove a toe because she hid the sore and entire foot was infected.
I am grateful my mom is still alive, but her living with me is becoming too much. I don’t know if I’m just going through the normal stress of this or it’s time to put her in a nursing facility.
