I have been caretaking for my mom now and my dad before he died of cancer 5 years ago. after my dad passed i moved in with my mom because she was lonely and needed help to stay in her home.
its been 5 years now. I have no life, no help and feel like i am losing my mind. I get very upset when my sister refuses to give me a break. she says mom wont stay at her house..and she cant stay here. i also caretake for my special needs 21 yo daughter..my sister wants my girl to go to a group home because she stresses out mom sometimes. I'm supposed to choose between the two. not an option.
my brother came out from the midwest but is ready to go back because of the stress.
I feel like our little family(mom jen and me) are all by ourselves.have a big family that is to busy to come around so we never see anyone.. I guess I'm rambling..Feeling like running away and hiding.not an opton. I guess I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed.. I don't know why Im writing this.. maybe someone else can help me cope with everything
