Mom was placed in AL last summer. This after a couple years of much stress, heartache, physical, mental & emotional toll. Now I find myself wondering what will it take to feel like my old self? Or is "she" gone forever? I have no desire to even visit Mom anymore. I am just so burned out. And so very sad. Yes, I'm on antidepressants and seeing a therapist.. I do feel somewhat better. At least I am participating in life again to a certain degree. But, I'm just not "me".
