Some things my grandma has done:
-Constantly attack and hit me: several huge bruises and cuts from her
-Get angry and attempt to break furniture, the house, etc.
-Repeats things over and over again, getting more agitated each time
-Goes to the bathroom every 2 minutes
-Flooded the entire house and the basement twice
-Sleeps 2-3 hours a day, I don't know how she has so much energy and strength
-Tries to smash my laptop, rip up my homework every chance she gets (once ripped up my exam notes the day before, I had to pull an all nighter rewriting them)
-Is either crying or screaming 24/7
-Tries to let my dog loose in incoming traffic, attempt to harm her, eat her dog food, etc.
-Always takes off all her clothes and tries to wander out the door
-Has gotten lost within a matter of minutes multiple times, can't find her way back
-Kicks and tries to break the door or window if I don't let her out
-Must watch her every minute of the day
-Goes to the washroom everywhere, including my room and the living room
My mom and I are the main caregivers for my grandma and it's just so hard. There's not a day where we both get enough sleep and we're constantly in tears just because of the pressure and the mental exhaustion.
I have had 4 midterms, 3 major assignments, and 2 labs this week as well as an upcoming exam tomorrow, but she's more than one person can handle and my mom had to quit her job just to watch my grandma 24/7. I don't know what to do anymore, it just feels like there's no way out and I'm so sleep deprived, stressed, and in pain (physical and mental). I'm a high achieving student in a very rigorous university program that I worked extremely hard to get in, and need to keep a competitive average to stay in it. I have given up my social life, varsity sport, clubs, and any kind of relaxing activity just to barely stay on top of my studies and live with my grandma. It feels like I'm at a breaking point, and I just need to share this with someone. Thanks for reading, I really appreciate any advice or words.
