I have no idea what topic to put this under. The last couple of days have been brutal. It took everything I had to get mom's doctor to order something for a UTI when she was having the very same symptoms as last time. As I scour thru topics to find help and guidance I see "Elder Abuse" but absolutely nothing about "Caregiver Abuse". I have gone thru something the last few days that was just brutal and I'm sitting here this morning still numb from what all has happened and still could happen today. NO ONE WILL EVER UNDERSTAND unless they have WALKED in our shoes. Everyone kept telling me to separate myself from what was happening because mom couldn't help it. DUH!!!!! I know she couldn't help it AFTER I figured out what was happening. But that doesn't help me know how to separate myself. HOW do you separate yourself? Can someone please share with me.
