I've been caring for mom for almost 5 years. Recently relocated thinking it would help to ease the caregiving burden in the form of caregivers, respite, the like. It worked for a little bit. I found work outside home, my other half wasn't working during this time so he took on the caregiving. He started working. I had to quit my job and haven't been able to find an agency in 6 weeks of phone calls, email and the like to help or take mom.
Medicaid unacceptable at most places. My car broke down, my landlord keeps trying to evict me because the rent is late. I dealt with the other half not working becuase of the help I was getting with mom. Late, overdue bills, sometimes limited food other than moms. I have an 8 year old son, my 18 year old basically escaped and went across the country with her new boyfriend. I dont know what else to do. I want to step out on faith and move to Texas but I have no car. and its hell hot there. I found a place for mom there so I think I may try it. He keeps saying oh you've changed, you're not happy, blah blah. He's been helpful, just not financially. Thats my fault. I was scared to do this alone so I put up with entirely too much. But thats over now. I have done all the legwork I can to help fix this situation but nothing seems to be working. Everytime I get one problem solved it seems 6 more pop up. He keeps saying be positive, don't be negative, it will all work out. While everything crumbles around us. I'm tired and I just don't want to do this anymore...Any advice or suggestions are most welcome at this point.
