I'm a paid Caregiver, and love my boss like I would my own mother. She's wonderful, and terrible at the same time. I do everything for her. From scrubbing her floors to braiding her hair, and everything in between. Please understand that this woman is VERY demanding. She went through 7 paid Caregivers in one year. Most quit. I'm so tired by the end of the day from physical work, and lack of sleep that I just don't feel like socializing with her a lot of the time. I'm too damn tired. Sometimes she is lonely because I don't sit with her, and watch t.v. Or just chat about her life, her problems, her opinions....that I've already heard a thousand times. I feel like she is just draining me of every last drop of what I have to give sometimes. She will start banging on her soup bowl or doing something dramatic to make a lot of noise to get my attention. I already work so hard for her. Should I take the little quiet time I have in between to rush to her loneliness all the time? Am I neglecting her if I don't sit with her, and just chat whenever she is lonely...which is frequent? Please give advice how to resolve this...I feel completely drained, and powerless over having any options.
