I am a caregiver for my mom who lives with me. At this point she does sleep regularly, but she gets very anxious about being alone at night (just in her bedroom - I would never leave her all alone). It has been this way for a while, but got a lot more intense after I broke my shoulder last year. At first, the only place I could really sleep was in a recliner in our living room. Saying she wanted to help me, she started sleeping on the couch. Since then, she has become increasingly concerned about being alone at night. We had house guests recently and during that time we shared a room and now she gets really anxious any time I try to herd her back into her own bedroom. I love her and I'm with her 24 hours a day, but she just gets so sad about going back to her room and says she is scared. I just don't have the heart to make her. As selfish as it makes me feel, I have to admit I miss having one small area of my life that was my space and not devoted to caring for her. Has anyone else experienced this? Suggestions?
