I live with her and we have only lived in this town for a couple of years. My brother also lives with us. We don't live near any relatives but even if we did the small number of the living ones have their own problems. I am recently divorced and feel at times extremely lonely and overwhelmed with caring for my mother 24/7 unless we get a caregiver to stay with her. She absolutely hates it when both of us (My brother and me) go out together. She hates to be with anyone except us. My life has changed so drastically in only a short time and with living in a new town strange to us at times feel like I'm living in the twilight zone. Feel we made a mistake moving here at times but I really don't have anyone to be with anywhere. My mother had a Tia over a year ago and she lost so much mobility that she needs help with almost everything. Lately she hates to take her medications a lot, mostly her morning ones, and I have to sit with her for longest time while she spits her pill out and keeps going on until she takes all of her pills. Seems as day goes on she can take her pills more easily, but she needs her morning ones, too. She does have some better days where she will take her morning meds with little trouble, but lately seems more bad mornings than good. I have been feeling I don't have much time for myself and this is very depressing. I have made some friends here and I could invite them over to socialize but feel so exhausted most of time for that. My mother has been the best mother anyone could ask for and now I feel like I need to be here for her. Don't want to put her in a NH. She would be miserable and lost there. Guess I'm just venting now and really don't know what advice I really want but just know I would love more time for myself but feel like I'm trapped here. It's very depressing seeing my mother as she is as she's changed so much in the past years. She's miserable and this dementia is taking its toll on everyone. Any advice welcome. Thank you.
