Sandwich generation burnout: Grandkids and parent.
I have a real problem. My husband has dementia, my son needs help with babysitting my grandchild, my mom is in transitional care after foot surgery and she also needs my help. I am stretched beyond stretched!!!!! My son had an accident at work and tomorrow he will need a second surgery, I will babysit our grandchild tomorrow. Heaven help me, it is very difficult babysitting a 2-year-old while taking care of my husband who has dementia. My mom needs me to get her things in transitional care following her surgery. HELP! I need to get my hair cut and have had to cancel adult day care 2 times now because of things that just seem to come up!!! It seems EASY now to just care for my husband when I'm not babysitting or running to the transitional care unit bringing things to my mom. Anyway, just needed to vent here. I don't seem to know of a solution to the problem anytime soon, sigh. It is SO MUCH easier JUST caring for my husband only.
