My name is Bill, I was invited here to meet others and share. I am a 45yo caregiver for my 81yo Mother that has Alzheimer's and my 85 yo Aunt that has Arthritis and other health issues. The three of us are in the same home and we live in the Mountains of California near Lake Tahoe.
I have a hard time with my "Acquired" job. My sleeping is normally done in a chair between chasing the estrogen queens needs. It is never ending around here, 24/7 I never know what is next.
I have Mom on waiting list at different facilities but there is no date in sight right now. I have a sister but she doesn't get involved too much. More like 10 minute visits and a lot of no-call no-shows.
I feel I am struggling every moment of my life just to keep anything in what we refer to as order. My daily story's can make a great comic book but I will spare you details right now as I just want to meet others that deal with life with Alzheimer's.
I question everything I do, did I say the right thing, did I do the right thing, how can I do it better, why did i say or do that. It goes on and on.
I need to get things ready for the day, Just wanted to stop by and "break the Ice".
Thanks for the invite Carol.
