My mother was diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer in April 2019. She’s been through a few different treatments but this latest & last available treatment is no longer working so treatment has stopped and she was put into hospice care a couple of days ago. She moved in with my husband and I in November 2020 and was doing fairly well for the last few months however in the last three weeks she started declining fairly rapidly, especially in the last week. She is now no longer able to do anything for herself. I have been working from home for the last couple of months and that has been working fine until now. Now with all of the care she is requiring, pretty much 24 hours a day seven days a week, I can’t even get my work done from home. It is like having to take care of a newborn baby. I am at my wits end and don’t know how much longer I can do this. My husband helps when he can, but he works outside of the home so he’s gone a lot. My mother and I have always had a somewhat touchy relationship & I find myself getting irritated at her for putting me in this position, even though I know it’s not her fault. To be brutally honest, her death will be a relief to me. I don’t want to see her linger on for months suffering & I physically and mentally cannot do this for months. I know that sounds horrible, but it’s how I feel. My home that was my sanctuary is now a prison that I’m trapped in with no way out. Any comments/advice are appreciated.
