To me, being a caregiver is a two-way street. If the person you are caring for is capable of, but choosing not to care for his/herself, then should you really continue to put the effort in despite their requests for your assistance and their spoken desire to heal and move forward? Based on some recent actions (that are in line with their past unhealthy actions) of the person I am helping I really want to walk away and leave them on their own. However, as this is my mother and the grandmother of my son it is a heartwrenching decision.
I understand that it is ultimately my decision and a very personal one as I have all the information (which is far too much to put here) but would like to hear from others whom have had these feelings or are going through similar situations at the moment. Thank you.
