Caregiver giving up.

Follow
Share

Mom is end stage lung cancer that has spread everywhere. Hospice has been called. I stay at moms during the week and travel an hour back to my home to work 3 days then back to moms home. My brother helps when I'm not there. Im under the care for anxiety disorder. Even before this all started. Stressed. Crying nightmares hyperventilating. Tired. I want to give up. I have support. My dad has primary progressive multiple sclerosis so i care for him also.

Dear imonoverload,

I'm so sorry to hear how you feel. There is a lot on your shoulders. Try to be kind and gentle with yourself. If you are able to, try and reach out. There is help in the community and through church. I hope you can get more supports. Sending you love and hugs.

Why is there a rollercoaster and who thought of this. The trauma of being the caregiver. I cry every time I think of mom. A memory pops into my head and I cry . My boss says you need to pull yourself together. I'm numb under water motionless drowning...I have been fine for a bit and now back to the beginning again...

I'm so sorry for what you're going through. Talk to Hospice about their grief counseling services. It really does help

Overload I know the pain you are feeling. Trust me it will get more tolerable each day. Just remember to breathe. I know that probably sounds like a stupid suggestion but I notice when I am anxious my breathing gets shallower........I don't know if everyone is like that.

You are not alone........prayers for you.

I wish I could give you a hug, put my hand into your heart and take the pain and sadness away. All I can do though is wish you lots of love and peace, knowing that time will heal that empty space if not fill it, God Bless you and your family xxx

I'm so very sorry for your loss. There's something unique about being a daughter losing their mother. My mom left this world nine years ago and I still miss her everyday. Over time though, the pain lessens and the good memories of her bring happy thoughts. I pray this will happen for you and you will have peace in the days ahead knowing your mother is free from pain. Blessings

So traumatic for me. I don't ever want my kids to have to watch me die.
