I just got an email from an old friend that I haven't seen in a while that has been diagnosed with a possibly terminal illness. I am so wrapped up in all the drama with my mother ( I see a psychiatrist and a psychologist, diagnosed with PTSD and also on antidepressant and antianxiety meds). I think I just had compassion burnout. I am an old retired nurse but I just emotionally just don't think I have anything left to give. I am exhausted just getting thru the day with mother. What do I tell this poor woman? I don't think she has good health insurance and also a marriage she isn't happy in.I feel awful for her but at the present all my emotions are tied up with my mother who lives with me and I never know what each day is going to bring. Will it be a good day or a bad day? Any advice would be appreciated.
