I take care of my Mother who is 96. She's in fairly good health physically. She can walk, dress , potty (mostly) . But she requires oxygen 24/7 and takes it off alot. ALOTTTTTT. Last night I ran in there for the second time and it was on the floor and her O2 sat was in the 60s . Thats the lowest I've ever seen it. At least it goes up fast. The thing is I am soo burned out. It is a constant battle to not let my standards fall and I know they already have to some extend. I'm tired (part physically, mental , part depression). I took care of her thru stage one cancer ( my sister took her the week right after treatment thank god) and shingles. But this feels the worse it's ever been ...and I have help 3 days a week for approx 6 hours each. I'm tired , tired , tired and I worry that I'm not as focused as I should be or to b*tchy .. ok i worry worry worry. Anyone else? Is this the secret "caregiver" reality?
