My mom with end stage MS moved in with me last July. She is bed bound and requires 100% care. I'm alone and going crazy!
Wondering if anyone else is in similar shoes. I moved my 74 year old mom in with me after a terrible stint in a nursing home where she was neglected. She requires 100% care. She is quadrapalegic, needs to be turned every few hours, diapered, meds, breathing treatments, grooming, and all that comes with that. My family visits on occasion but is not involved in her care. They say they can't handle it. I am single, just happen to work from home in an administrative position which allowed me to bring her home. I feel alone (and I am!), angry, frustrated, couped up, tired. This is so difficult! I can only find two support groups in my area - one meets once a month and the other meets twice a month on Monday during working hours so I can't attend. Going crazy here. I do have someone who comes in occasionally so I can get out but it's just not enough. This is draining. :)
