I am my mom's sole caregiver. No support system at all. I cannot find a support group in my area (Bensonhurst/Bay Ridge). My best friend past from cancer 2 years ago. Mom and I used to go out together and have fun. She is declining mentally and physically from cancer and pulmonary fibrosis. She depends on me for everything other than her own personal hygiene. My therapist uses the expression positive support. The only person I get any positive anything from is myself. I am absolutely exhausted. We do have an aide for 3 hours 5 days a week. But that's it.
