"Caregiving is not the type of job that entitles you to days off." I quit my job with benefits to take care of my Mom who required 24/7 care, and after a few weeks, my Dad also required 24/7 care. I received no help or support from my family, and I would get emails like the one above insinuating that my job was so easy that I didn't need to take time off. My brothers REFUSE to listen to me when I try to explain this to them, and their justification for not responding to my multiple emails begging for help was - You're just trying to start drama. I sustained a hip injury and rosacea, went into a major depression, my anxiety disorder escalated, (mostly due to being ignored by my family.
-They will not read anything I send them - they will only listen if it's from a professional source, like a doctor. and they think I made up the term "Caregiver Burnout"
PLEASE HELP. How can I get them to understand??
