I've always taken care of my parents. My dad died 17 yrsago. I work and always went to mom's house after work to take share with them. I have my mom in my home for 5 years now. She suffers dementia, had a hip prótesis surgery and is in bed since. She's has gone from bad, angry, nasty temper some days to sweet praying angel days. My brother and sister in law help by staying with her, during the day while I work. As soon as I arrive they leave. During the day, there's a housekeeper that only takes care of her room, a nurse that come to bath her with the housekeeper. Evenings, nights, Sundays Saturdays and holidays I have to take care of her by myself. I feel exhausted, that I'm losing the will of being here. So many things to say and hard to express. Sometimes I have to leave work cause I feel so bad. I work as school principal as you might know very stressful. Can get my brother to understand that I need his help on weekends, that what he does is not a favor but a responsibility with our mom.
