My mother has been diagnosed with lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, COPD, congestive heart failure, and high blood pressure. We currently live with my brother and I still am the one that does everything for her. Not that I am complaining but I have my daughter to care for and I can't do that correctly because I'm caring for my mom full time. I haven't had a job in 2 years now and trying to get one, interferes with my mom's appointments and some with my daughter's school schedule. I try not to become overwhelmed but it happens. And until my mom became sick we had the worse relationship but I managed to stay and fight for it to become better. I really want my life to flourish so that I will not only be able to take care of my daughter but myself as well and live a life that I'm proud of. But I seriously hate that helping my mom makes me at times neglect my daughter she's only 7 and we have conversations because I want to know how she feels and things she has told me only hurts more.
