This forum has been a godsend when dealing with my elderly mother. There are times I am on here for hours at a time. Others time I avoid it because of the horror stories that caregivers have to endure. Yet, here I am posting. Do others feel a needed drive and avoidance to this website? Do others feel comforted and repelled by this site that is so helpful, yet also emotionally drained by some of the postings they read?
