I am new to this site and saw some great comments. I too am in need of some support, and just reading that I am not alone helps. I suffer from depression myself but have had it under control for the past 5 1/2 years. I moved here in June 2008 to be with my ageing father and a Brother who is ill with lung cancer. I am finding my depression is comming back. I don't have much support out here and am just feeling alone like alot of you. Just looking forward to being a part of this site and maybee feeling conected to something.
Hi Dotty - You are already connected -- we welcome you with open arms. I wish we had a live chat here, I've mentioned that before. This is a serious problem taking care of someone else while taking care of ourselves FIRST. Write again when you have time. Sandi
Thank you very much for the response, you have all ready made me feel better by just acknowleging me. I am looking forward to being connected. I hope everyone has a peaceful Holiday. Dotty
Dotty, do you live with your father & brother ? Or just in the same town?
I am in the same town, have my own apartment, but I spend the weekends over at my Fathers house (caregiving) and pop in from time to tome to see my Brother and family.
That is good. Living in the same house, well I can say, can be very trying. Even though mom & I live on different floors, we are still in the same house, still connected. Mom has post trauma stress & I believe it is stored deep in her brain and she in my opinion needs to talk to someone about it. Me, I need to take care of me and quit trying to change her. I don't want to spend all my time with mom & I am all she has...to be continued.
