PLEASE tell me someone else in this board lacks a decent support system? Part of me if very angry that I can't rely on anyone to help.
I've been trying SO hard to take care of my grandmother, even though she's living with SOMEONE ELSE. Problem is, this other person... Isn't doing so well herself. She's in her 40s, has cancer and is going blind. So, where's the family?
There's a huge generation gap where all the elders are well in their 60s, and the rest of us are within our 20s. You know, getting jobs, having kids and the like...
So where's the help for me? I'm in the same boat and I'm VERY tired of doing this. I'm, at the point where I want to cut ties with my grandmother because I really can't take care of her from a far and there's noone to ask for help without telling me, "Oh, I don't know ehn I have time."
Darn You. I'm tired of calling out from my job and ..There's just a lot to explain.
My god. I hate everybody and I don'[t want to do this anymore. I'm not even sure where to go next. My grandmother needs either assisted living or a retirement home, and assisted living has a years worth of waiting lists!
ALso, nobody can afford anything, so now I'm stuck looking for subsidized on top of it. I am tired and don't want to do it anymore.
