I am so mentally exhausted and no one appreciates what I am doing for my mother and grand baby here in my mother's house. I have been caring for her solo for 5 years now and do everything for her except wipe her bottom. I also help immensely with my little grand baby (taking her to daycare, bathing and babysitting her, feeding her) all of things her mother should be doing now that she is unemployed. She lets my son do it all which I think is so unfair. Of course he is stressed out as am I with so much responsibility. I am thinking of telling my mother and the home health nurses who only come here once a week that I have to leave for a while. But I am so afraid my son will start on his drinking binge and his baby and my mother will be neglected. My mother has outlived all of her assets and only gets a small pension from my deceased father. I receive a widow's benefit which barely meets poverty standard. Further, my mother refuses to leave her home. Any helpful advice would be wonderful. I have crying spells everyday, depression and anxiety. Thank you and God Bless all caregivers posting her on this wonderful website.
