I retired early three years ago for a combination of bipolar disorder, chronic migraines, and fibromyalgia. For financial and other reasons, I have been living with my parents, each in a different stage of Alzheimer's/dementia. At first, it was ok. But my bipolar is rapid cycling and I had to be hospitalized last year for a combination of psychotic break and exhaustion. As their conditions have declined, the stress on me has gone through the roof. But we cannot get my parents to agree to move to AL. I'm having to over-medicate myself with Xanax, adderal, and nighttime tranquilizers to try to stay functional. I'm still waiting for my SSDI benefits but in the meantime I feel like I am drowning. Any suggestions on how I can preserve my own fragile health condition? Trying to bring in a caregiver a few days a week was a dramatic failure because Mom didn't want to stay alone with someone she didn't know.
