My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's 3 years ago when she was 67 but the symptoms started before she even retired at 65. When I talked with her doctors that this seemed to be really young they kind of just blew me off. I'm still living with them while I search for my own house which has turned into a years long endeavor in my area. My mother is determined to stay at home and my father supports that idea, my being at home seems to be enabling this idea as they force more and more on me even as I try to stay working full time. I now do their bills, laundry, cleaning, cooking, shopping, lawn mowing and driving to appointments. All while continuing my own work and home search. The emotional burnout I'm suffering is extreme, they give me no personal time (or space) and being that I'm 37 I was not expecting to have to dedicate this much time at my age when I want to focus on my career and my own family. They wont even give me time to date!! I can't go anywhere as they feel all days I'm not working should be exclusive care of them! I even had to give up working 5 days a week so I can get caught up on their stuff and they feel it's my duty to do it. Mom is getting so bad she can't dress or shower correctly but just yells at me when I try helping....When I talk with people about it, it's always you can do more...more, but I'm already at my breaking point. I mean really you think I can take all their bills with me to work and do their budget on my 15min work break!! (If I even get that break and skip eating) Really!! (the Alzheimer's associate told me to do that) and do the grocery shopping after my 9.5 hour day to go home and clean up my moms kitchen nightmares, to cook and clean up again (2 loads in the dishwasher to clean up after mom) for a 13 hour day, then deal with her sun downers and waking me up several times a night?! People tell me I can still do more?! Oh and the family says you can do all the mowing on the weekend since you dont want to do it after work. I'm stressed, burned out and exhausted. I honestly can't understand why family members would do this to a child. Is there a way I can break free from this burnout and move on with my life without them guilt tripping me that I'm a horrible child? Am I selfish for wanting a date at least once a year and some personal space? I'm trying to get mom on Medicaid but that could take months still.
