My mom has a chronic illness, she has no short term memory, wheelchair bound, and is unable to care for herself. My father has been sick for 1 month and (thankfully/finally) went in for surgery. He is still in the hospital. My mother's side of the family has never been involved in her care. And the support from my father's side has already started to dwindle. I do have a partner, but just found out he reconnected with a woman who tried to split us up in the past. Most of my friends disappeared with my mom's illness.
I work, clean, cook, run back and forth from the hospital. I feel trapped inside the house - I get invited out, but its either mom, dad, or just too tired.
