I care for my 81 yr old mother (she doesn’t drive, needs help showering, I cook all her meals, manage her meds) who has been in our (w/my amazing husband) home for the last 2 1/2 yrs. We (hubby and I) moved 1100 miles from home (what few friends/family I had are there) to help w/hubby’s medical issues (moving here, FL, he now is now able to work). I have no friends here and now with COVID (what few visiting nurses we HAD) no one has been in my house for months. I get out only to go to the grocery store (mom comes along but if stores are swamped she stays in the car - which is most of the time) and when she has a doctors appt. I don’t want to expose myself to anyone outside my home because I doesn’t want to get sick or pass it onto my mother.
Most days I’m alright but there are times when I just feel so alone (especially when my husband goes out fishing once every six weeks or so). I feel like some days I’m absolutely going stark raving mad. Anyone have any ideas or thoughts on what I could do before I lose it?
