Caregiver: Working full-time and caring for Mother full-time.
For the past 7 years I have been taking care of my mother with Alzheimer's along with the assistance of a homeaide while I'm at work. I'm exhausted at work and at home. I am feeling very STRESSED, ANGRY AND RESENTFUL. I have two siblings that live in another state and have kept their distance. Both of these siblings are not speaking with each other so it causes more tension and their excuses are they are busy taking care of their own kids. I'm sick of their BS. I have absolutely NO PATIENCE. I'm getting sick, my left arm and fingers are stressed and painful. I'm really angry that I am now seeking to put her in a memory care unit, which is expensive, and this angers me profusely. I just can't do this anymore. If I get sick, what will happen to her? I have no life. I'm single, no children and no SUPPORT. I'm anxious and want this to be over. I'm p!ssed off! I never thought my family would react this way. God does not like UGLY.
