I have tried to take care of Mom 24/7 for over 2 years and her condition (Diabetes, Needing depends, Depression, And Dementia} has gotten worst. She likes to sleep until 2-3 pm, says she is at peace. She insists on sucking on sugar free lifesaver's as she has dry mouth, but gets diarrhea from them. It means her sleeping with me. I love her but I do not sleep hardly at all worrying and taking care of her. She does need Assisted Living and is on 3 insulin shots per day. She is definitely better off sleeping at er place. I visit and take her out 2-3 times per week. I also make her Egg Mcmuffin's as she loves them and will not get out of bed to eat until supper.What do I do? I have been having health issues (Colitis) I need relaxation and calm time. I feel guilty but what can I say to her to make her understand without hurting her feelings or getting her upset?
