Although my first experience sharing on this page was not pleasant, I still think that is an excellent opportunity to vent our struggles as caregivers. I am suffering from anxiety and depression, apart from having heart, liver condition and others health issues. I've been trying to take care of my mother who is 91 years old and suffering from Alzheimers. I have gone through many stages with her disease. There are now four years already. In the last year, her obsession is growing and already my nerves do not give more. Yesterday I had an anxiety attack. I called for information to place her in a living assistance. Although I will be there to take care of her and make sure that this is a good place,I feel guilty. Today I woke up and the guilt will not let me. She never wanted to go to an assitance living. Although that for my health and her welfare it would be best, I can not do it. I wonder if others have been in this dilemma and what resolution was taken. Please advice.
