It is all very stressfull helping with care giving. I help with taking care of my Mom. She is in assisted living but I wash her cloths, pay the bills and visit with her 4-5 days a week. My sister lives only 40 min away but does nothing.
Then my daughter lives 2 miles down the road and will help when I call. But my daughter also calls me for help with my grandson.
There is also my husband's mother who lives 45 min away, she is 92 and is need of help. She however, refuses to move from her condo, lives alone and at this time doesn't want outside help to come in. My husband visits with his Mom once or twice a week to pay bills and take her shopping. We discuss the issues with his Mom and now he would like me to talk with her. To try presuade her to allow us to contact someone to do light house keeping, even if it is twice a week. His Mom refuses to see a Dr and I know that she is now having health issues. I am at a loss with this one.
And now my husband, I am starting to worry about him. He is 70 and is starting to forget things. I am not sure how to approach this topic with him. And I'm not sure just how much more I can take. I also work part time and starting to really want to quit my job and run away. I would like my life back, like it was 2 years ago.
