My mom has COPD, is on oxygen 24/7, can no longer drive and doesn't leave the house. We have related living and my husband and I live upstairs. I love my mom and have always been close to her. I feel so helpless that she is in that condition and feel sorry for her. She doesn't always make it easy to be around her, doesn't want to eat, doesn't want to go to the doctor, tells me that she just wants to die in her sleep. It makes me almost dread being around her but then I'm extremely worried that her health can and most likely will get seriously worse and I'm worried how I will handle it when she finally passes. I feel helpless, depressed, guilty, frankly just a mess. For those of you who have felt like this, have you found a way to get grounded?
