I feel like everyone in my family has a life, but me. My children think I put the care of my mother before them. What do I do?
My Mother is 78. She went for laproscopic surgery to correct hernia and bring her stomach down. The procedure went well, but she wasn't able to breath and now she is in the processive care unit doing well. I hope she will be transfered to a room. My brother lives in Florida and talks to me daily. He feels that I should stay a hour since she doesn't feel well. I go everyday at 8:30 and stay until 5or 6:00. My childred are grown and not home I come everyday tired. not really motivated to cook so I pick up for myself food. I'ts sad I'm doing this all alone. I feel like everyone has a life but me. I've been taking care of my Mother since 2002 when she had serious car addident The doctors look to me and I receite her medical history and who are her doctors. My children are 23 and 20 and sometimes they feel I put my Mother over them which I have. I' so overwhelmed and alone I know everyone tells me that I'm doing a good job.
