Eight years ago my mom came down with transverse myelitis, it's a cousin to multiple sclerosis. I've been her caregiver since her diagnosis. She wants to be home, but she needs 24 hour care. So my aunt goes over in the morning, then I go over to her house after work. I leave my house at 4:30am and don't get home til 6:30pm or later every day. I feel as if I'm getting burned out, but then I feel guilty thinking that. My mom is very demanding and loves to be cared for by family. So if there is a time to place her in a nursing facility..I just can't think of doing that and breaking her heart. She has no money, she only receives a SS check a month. She has a house but it needs alot of repair. I'm the only child as my brother passed away 1 year ago leaving all the decisions to me. I'm so stressed and guilty feeling, what should I do?
