In 2015 my mother died after fighting cancer. I took care of her the last year when things were the worst. One brother moved back into the home at that time because my parents let him stay for $200 rent and asked he cook meals(he was going to culinary school). Right after mom died I started to notice my dad needing more care and began taking him to all doctor appointments, changed his diet to help with medical issues, made him a pill box weekly etc. He now has moderate dementia and needs help with even more daily activity. Uses walker, recent pacemaker out in and on and on...he’s 84. Recently my brother had a health scare and moved out saying caring for my dad was too much stress for him! I was doing everything for my dad other than sleeping in his house at night and making dinner! Another brother hates me for many reasons (I’m executor of will, call him on his alcoholism etc) and doesn’t help. My sister lives 10 hours away and can’t offer any help though she is going to start coming for a week every couple months to give me a break. I am only 39 and feel like this is sucking the life out of me! I feel terrible for my husband who has to listen to me go on rants about my stress and how horrible I feel my brothers are. I feel like I’m neglecting my home, dog, work etc. My dad won’t move into a retirement community/assisted living. My husband thinks we should move him into our house, but as terrible as this sounds, I don’t want him there! I need some type of personal sacred space...and he’s stinky. Lol! Anyway, this is exhausting and I don’t see any way to improve my situation. Just have to grin and bare it ya know?
