Is there rules about that few day break and when you can do it? Do you pay for it? Is it ok to do it while they are recovering from a UTI just so you can get sleep? I haven't slept at all in 3 days. I'm so tired. She hasn't slept at night either. Her meds keep her up and keep her screaming all night long. I don't know if they aren't working or just the side effects are too harsh. Her doctor wasn't in the last two days to help and after 5 and 1/2 hours in an ER to get the meds in the first place, I didn't want to go back because all that makes me do is sit in a room with a moaning person unable to even walk away only to be told she has a UTI and the drugs she is being given will make her crazy but better so it's important. I'm just so tired. All I need is 4 hours a sleep at night and I can't even get 5.
So has anyone used the break thing using medicare for this kind of thing before? Does it help?
