I'm young. Youngest of all my siblings do I was told caregiving was my job. I cared for my dad through death and am six years in with my mom... and I work, and have my own family. Two weeks ago as I was keeping vigil at my mom's bedside I fell to the floor with a grand mal seizure, and have had two more. I can't drive. She's back at nursing home but she is in end stage organ failure of heart, lung, kidneys, etc. my trigger is stress. Caregivers your parents don't want you to die taking care of them even though it may seem it. Listen to your bodies.
