I am 61 and not in the best of health anymore. The stress is unbearable now. I feel like I'm going to collapse most of the time. My mother has been violent, yells, and is constantly trying to leave to go "home". She sits at our locked gate yelling and crying for help. My heart is broken and so is my ability to do this any longer. I can't get anyone to help me. There have been multiple agencies and calls I've made and no one has helped me yet. What would happen to me if I just left and called these agencies and told them that they are both are there alone and can not care for themselves? Would there be charges filed? What will happen if I collapse and die and no one knew? Would there be charges then? That will happen if I don't get some help. I know this sounds like I'm overreacting but I am not. I wake up crying every day now and I have lost 12 pounds. I'm thin to begin with. I haven't been able to leave the house for more than 45 minutes in 2 years. If I do I come home to yelling or some kind of crisis. I can not do this anymore I have become forgetful and I know I'm not doing a good job anymore. My temper is short. I am not this person. I love my mother and want to help but what about me? Some days I am in so much pain I can barely breathe but I have to get up and feed them and make sure she takes her meds and check her blood sugar and do her laundry because of incontinence. Change the bedding often. I can't even get the paperwork done for Medicaid because of the constant interruptions. So much information I have to find and call about and get more paperwork for them. And I am EXHAUSTED!
