Mom has 9 lives and the roller coaster is killing me.
I've been caring for my mom in my home for 4 1/2 years. She has alzheimer's and was diagnosed with lung cancer 5 months ago. She has been on the brink of death a number of times and always seems to bounce back. Although I have lots of support with hospice and friends and family, this back and forth emotional roller coaster is too much. When she is doing poorly, I feel like I can muster up and keep going because I see a light at the end of the tunnel. I gear up for the end, but then she has miracle style comebacks. The stress is causing me medical concerns of my own. I don't even know what my question is...needed to vent this morning. Anybody experience this??
