I am very thankful for this site

I have been caring for my bedridden mom for over a year now. I felt very alone and guilty about the feelings I've had until I found this site. The daily duties of changing diapers and dealing with the body functions can really get to you sometimes. I'm glad I'm not as alone as I thought I was.

I know what you mean, diana. I was on another site for a while and felt like I must be totally wicked. People on that site felt nothing but love through all the frustration and were willing to do anything to help their loved ones. I felt bad that I felt angry very often and resistant to doing too much. I am glad to be able to speak honestly on this site, though I have to admit I like the occasional everything-is-roses post here. Caregiving is sometimes hard, but more often it is all okay.
