I'm going nuts staying in the house everyday. Day in and day out. My mother is 90 with dementia but can still feed, dress and shower herself. But still needs me around. Well, I'm thinking about putting her in some kind of home. Anywhere, just out of my house. So now I need a job. Ok, so I had an interview the other day and it went down the tubes almost from the beginning. My social skills are nil since I've been home with Mom for 2 1/2 yrs. And out of a job for 4 1/2. So trying to explain what I did at my last job 4 yrs. ago didn't go well. And the stupid questions they asked me I couldn't answer. Could being around someone with dementia, you catch it too? It sure feels like it. I don't know if I will ever be able to get a job again and I won't be able to collect SS until I'm 62, 2 1/12 more yrs. That's if they don't raise it to 63 like they are talking about doing. Maybe a Fast Food Restaurant will hire me. Oh, but I don't have any experience except 40 yrs. of being married and raising a family. It feels like my life is over and I'm only 59. Does anyone else feel this way or going through the same thing? I know I'm not alone. Hugs to all.
