I feel guilty because I have it so much easier than many. However, I am becoming bitter after almost two years with no end in sight. My dad begged me to help in keeping him and my mom aging in place - they were both 89 at the time, in a home/property too large for them to manage any longer. I reacted emotionally and quit my job, sold my beloved home and moved 150 miles to live on their property in a trailer I purchased and help with property upkeep, transportation to appts, health management, meals and such. I miss my friends, I miss my lovely little home, I miss working outside the home, I miss autonomy but I do not know how to extricate myself from this situation because NOW whatever decision I make directly affects my parents and I do not want a rift as my 91 yo parents approach their final years. I'm 60 and I thought at this point I would work part-time, travel a bit, visit friends, enjoy semi-retirement. My dad retired completely at age 55! I'm furious with myself that I didn't make this decision rationally, but jumped to "help" when asked. The parents truly appreciate me, yet don't understand what I've given up. I guess this is more of a pity party for myself, but I would like to hear how others have transitioned out of the caregiver role.
