My mom was recently diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus and is unable to swallow. She now has a feeding tube which has to be maintained every few hours. Since I am the only child, this like all other tasks have been given to me. Oh and by the way, I'm also married and my marriage is already on shaky ground because of various prior family issues, and I fear this will be the breaking point. My husband and I are already separated, and only see each other on weekends anyway, but now that this has happened, I don't know how we're even gonna have that time. We've already been through a lot with my dad who passed 3 years ago and we've only been married 6 years. I hate to sound like a whiny baby, but this whole situation has gotten me so overwhelmed and depressed because I'm trying to do what's best for everyone but don't know what to do. I have no siblings, or anyone else that my mom would feel comfortable with lthat could come in for one day just to free up some time with my husband and I. Since there is nobody else that can help, I am overwhelmed by everything because I don't see how this can be resolved. I feel guilty for even thinking like this, but I don't wanna end up with nothing. I already lost my job and am unable to work because of this situation and I'm afraid my marriage will be next. I realize this must seem extremely selfish but I can't help but feel like I'm trapped in a situation that I can't get out of. Any suggestions?
