Trying to hang in there.
When I read thru the forum, I realize many have it worse than me. I have been suffering from depression due to feeling trapped in this caregiver role. I was very naive when I started it. Now I feel I'll be lucky if I survive. I often feel I'm losing my sanity, and I try to talk to supportive people. Somehow I'm making it through. I'd like to believe there is a special place in heaven for us caregivers, but now I think that is just something people say because it makes them feel better. I'm lying in bed now, too tired to get up and face my sad life again. Best wishes to all who are in the same boat.
