I'm lyn from the Philippines, I 'm currently care giving my 83 yr old dad and 73 yr old mom. My dad has a prostate cancer fortunately he is still strong he still can move he choose to eat healthy food now, my mom has diabetes and arthritis she has daily maintenance and as of now luckily it is controlled, reading different health books really help me. My main task is preparing food, laundry, cleaning the house, medicine monitoring. Sometimes I feel so helpless and impatient if my parents are arguing over small things, sometimes I'm guilty if they are severely sick but I know it's not my fault. We prayed every night for thanksgiving and healing. What annoys me sometimes if my siblings complaining for their financial contribution and it pressured me to find part time work but i know it's not possible while i'm doing care giving full time. Hope I'm lucky to work abroad as accounting staff and help for expenses and salary for a relative to replace me in care giving. Only if it is God's will.
