I've never posted but always followed everyone on this site. I've been through it all, like most of you. The sibling that never helps, the loss of career, moving from my home 1000 miles away, the refusal to bathe, the lashing out at me-the caregiver, the dementia, the physical decline... All of it. Mom, after her 7th fall-broken bones, hospital, skilled, assisted, time after time. I understand all of it. I get it and now mom has 2 of the most deadly superbug uti's, advanced dementia and A-Fib, we are in the end of the 4th qtr...if you happen to be into football. EVERY person on this forum has touched me and taught me. I pray for you all and I pray that more resources will someday be available to each of us who sacrifice our careers, our financial future, our health and happiness to care for those we love-even when they are cruel to us when in the state of dementia. God, or whatever/whomever you believe in-bless and keep you all. Caregiving truly is the greatest of all sacrifices.

Thank you for your post. I too have learned so much here and find the caregivers to be amazingly resilient people.

Wow. The things people go through. You're not alone, just so you know. Hoping you can take care of you. Easy to say, not so easy to do though. Thanks for your post/message. I followed for the longest time before I wrote anything also. But when I did? It was a good decision. I'm not a 'social media' fan, but this website seems different. People here do 'get it'. What we are all going through. Even if the circumstances are different, the challenge is the exact same. Caring for the person we love who needs us. And figuring out how to make that happen.
