I feel like the world is crashing down around me.
My husband, 52, was diagnosed with brain tumors. Because of complications after surgery, he has trouble walking, has off and on double vision and sleeps alot. He has had chemotherapy and is now getting radiation therapy. 4 more rounds of chemo are scheduled afterwards.
My mother,79, has end stage COPD and has spent more time in hospitals these past 3 years than at home. She has now decided to go into a nursing home. My father,82, had 2 strokes last year and tires easily. He has been caring for my mother with the help of home health care and me.
My in-laws live in the USA, both are in poor health and have just left the hospital again.
We live in Europe. I have no family but an exceptional circle of friends which have come together to support us.
And yet....I feel like I'm drowning. Between caring for my husband, supporting my father, maintaining the house, garden and our 3 loving dogs and now preparing for my mother's transite into a nursing home; I feel like I am walking down a path all alone...
