Feeling guilty about Mom in nursing home, Dad still at home and lonely. Any advice?
My husband and I bought my parents home, 8 years ago and combined living. 4 months ago mom had series of strokes, and is in nursing home. I have been dealing with depression for 2 years and been suicidal, hospitalized several times. Mom asks every visit, when is she going home? I decided not to visit for a couple of weeks to see if it will sink in that she has to stay there now. I feel so confused about this, but relieved too. Am I an awful person? I see my dad and mom asks him the same question about coming home. He understands she can't. Words of wisdom please. :)
