I’m 22 years old, caring for my 58 year old mother with frontotemporal dementia (FTD). To be honest my dad does most of the work, but for some reason I’m struggling more than him. I’ve grown to resent my mom, I get incredibly frustrated, and end up feeling like a terrible daughter. I’m not coping well at all. I desperately want to move out and get away from this, but I can’t leave my dad to deal with this alone. My sister is only 10 years old and this is a terrible environment for her to be in. She “technically” has a mother, but in reality she doesn’t: she has only a handful of memories of our mom from before she was ill. She is 10 and her mom has a mental age of about 4. I’m worried I’ll be stuck here forever, I’m worried I’ll snap one day and do some serious harm to myself, I’m worried something will happen to my dad and then I’ll be my mom’s sole carer and my sister’s guardian... and I’m worried I’ll get FTD too. Just feeling really helpless at the moment. Has anybody got any “through the other side” stories, to give me a bit of hope? I really appreciate any stories or advice that comes my way. Thank you!
