Personal relationship suffering when you are caregiver.
Mom had sudden critical illness in June. Lost my job, about to lose home and now my boyfriend tells me he is preparing for the end of our relationship bc he is convinced I will move in with my oarents( out of state) and he is not good with long distance relationships. I chose to take care of mom and understood I would lose my job, I just did not expect boyfriend of 6 years would let me down. Mom is getting better everyday and I have been home for visits since June. I am going home this week for a few days to see boyfriend and check on house. Boyfriend told me not getting his hopes up bc my life lately has been roller coaster. I do not expect to move in with parents, I am just here helping them get over the hump and get a care plan together and looking at possibility of them moving closer to me. Help, it's just been my dad and I providing 24/7 care, we have started getting sitters in and getting more help in soon. It's an honor to take care of my mom but I am burnt out need a break. I am not sure if I should even see boyfriend or just break it off. He was the only stable thing I had left and this has been hard in both of us. He has been supportive and also very worried about me, he took 10 days off work to come and see me, but due to moms illness and another stay in hospital , he did not come. Mom has altered mental status so she is never left alone in hospital. Help
