Full time (7 days/week) caregiver with NO family in area. I'm not new to this, been taking care of her for over 16 years. Dementia is increasing and phobias are WOW. Out of control. No mental health support - this area is so short staffed and those available have "no time" or "training".
Maybe sharing my experience and feelings (seeing the "written" words) will bring me someone else who is affected the same way and give a "shoulder" to weep on. I am tired of crying alone.
That feeling of being alone really gets to me bad!!!!!!!!!!!
Adult conversation would be good and much needed. Many changes since I joined AgingCare, so I will edit my profile and bring it up to date. Thanks in advance for sharing.
