I feel like I've given up my whole life to take care of my mother. I moved into her home with her after she lost her second leg to diabetes. It was suppose to be just to get her settled in after her stay in rehab. It's been 2 and half years now. I've lost basically everything I had worked for. I have nothing to fall back on in my older years. I never had children nor a husband. I worked hard to enjoy a happy life my way. I bought rental property for when I retire, I bought a lot of assets to have when needed to sell. I no longer have anything. I feel as though I'm slowly but surely losing my mind. My mother who has always been the most strongest independent women I've ever known. My father died when I was 21 my mom was 45. My mom still to this day has been alone. She never dated, remarried, nothing. She says once I've had the best there's nothing worth wasting her time on. So off she went solo for the next 29 years. Now it's just me and my mom living this journey through what I call hell. And I hate that but I'm not sure there's another word to describe it fairly. My mother has become so needy so helpless and I'm not sure I can handle much more. I'm so worn out, so hurt and so disappointed in myself that I wish everyday to be my last. It's sad.
