Hello all, I am writing because I dont know what else to do. I am currently caring for my 71 year old mother who is on dialysis, received a liver transplant 7 years ago, has a rare form of cancer and is a stroke patient. She is lucid most days but suffers from what she herself calls "laziness and apathy". I have been caring for my mother since 2013 and she has been in steady decline since she arrived. I am suffering, myself, from a mystery connective tissue disease (says my rheumatologist) and taking care of my beautiful 2 year old son who has Down syndrome. I am overloaded to the very top of my endurance and physical/psychological/emotional ability. I have no help. My sister is in another state and unwilling to be a more active support. I just simply avoid the topic these dags because it only makes me exhausted emotionally to explain over and over again that I need help. This situation is too much and I'm feeling the burden these days more than others. My own health is declining. Im having memory problems, incontinence, head to toe pain everyday all day and anxiety and depression. I just dont know what to do anymore. Has anyone ever dealt with a situation like this? How did you come out of it. Im 37 years old and I'm missing out on the opportunity to be the best mother I can be to my son because I am so overwhelmed all the time. Please help...please.
