I am the main caregiver for my 97y/o grandmother, I myself am 24, I have been with her for 4 years now and am really struggling with having a life of my own without feeling guilty. It's really starting to effect me to the point I may be falling into depression and its changing the way I'm interacting with her and I find myself putting my own needs on the bottom of the priorities list. I do get time away every now and then, another member of the family comes in for a week maybe 4-5 times a year, other than that it's just the two of us at home. We don't go out much as too many people and strangers tire my grandmother out and the chance of her wandering off is high. (She has very bad Dementia) I feel like I'm nearly 25 now and I want to go out and meet people and start my life but that also makes me feel very selfish for wanting this, this whole question seems selfish to me since I'm just talking about myself. I don't really know how to get myself out of this slump, how do you find balance?
