Taking care of my mother 24/7 by myself, need a break. She has daily hallucinations and 99% of time cannot hold a conversation. I am 5 our of 6 children with no daily support from siblings. I can usually get one of them to take mom for a week once a year while I take a vacation with the “girls”. My immediate family take mom on all family vacations and have been there for me. I am at the point where I now realize I am abusing my children by continually asking them to help me with my mom. My mother thinks my son wants to marry her and have children. He is so unnerved by this that he won’t hug or kiss her every time he comes over anymore. It’s taken time, but he at least will talk to her now. I will not ask him to be alone with her for this reason. My mother thinks someone steals from her whenever she misplaces things. She wants to always be with me, never wants to be without me even to visit her other children. I take her to the store, appointments with me every time I leave the house. It’s a bit much.
