Friends help and private care is outrageous. I'm a newbie to caregiving for my mother. Folks tell me to take care of myself and I just laugh. I love my mom but sometimes I think I've gotten way over my head. Not only is she dealing with short term memory issues but she's a diabetic as well. My doc wants me to start anxiety/antidepressant meds. I just keep looking at the bottle. Not sure what I'm asking right now but I just don't like how I feel.
