HI dentassist, Yep, It's tiring, and heartbreaking and maddening and thankless and it will chew you up and spit you out.
Ready? well hang on, cause it's gonna be rough!
A lot of us here also have to deal with siblings that cause more stress than they help, or parents that are rude, ungrateful and even violent. I noticed that you have a man that is good enough to help you out with this, It won't be long before you realize how good that guy is.
It's a tough thing we do, but luckily a lot of us can get on this site and find some support and understanding, I think you'll find that it takes another caregiver to really understand what you're going through.
But try to remember that there is some reason why you do this, it's a personal reason that only you really understand, and don't ever feel bad or guilty about acknowledging the bad parts, any of them, all of them. They are real.
Stay strong. Ted.
