I seem to be asking myself this quite often these days. I haven't come up with a satisfying answer yet.
Is it because its the right thing to do and I'm being a good daughter?
Is it because I made a promise to my mother that I would never put her in a home?
Is it because I don't need a life or don't think enough of myself?
Is it because I don't want to spend the family trust on getting extra help?
Then there is the B side
What if she lives to be in her 90's?
What will my life be like then?
Have I made the wrong choice and is there a compromise?
What about my relationship? Will he be still healthy enough to do things when this is done?
Will I still be healthy enough to do things when this is done?
What about how my life will be like 5-10 years from now?
Will I have enough money to live?
Will Social Security pay me enough to survive since i stopped working to take care of Mom?
What about me?
Do you ever ask yourselves these types of questions? If so, I would love to know I'm not the only one.
