I am a caregiver for my mom, have been for 15 years, and I am absolutely exhausted. No family members will help and there are days I pray the good Lord take her home. I feel so guilty about this but her personality is changing for the worse and no matter what I try to do to brighten her day, or even entertain her, she gets so ornery and I find I lose my patience.
I had already taken care of a sibling that passed away and the last years with them was very similar to whats happening with mom. How do I continue on without having this stress wreak havoc on my physical body as well as emotionally?
