Today is my 50th birthday and I spent the moring with great friends and the evening retrieving my mother from the hospital. My mom has lived with me for the past 12 years and now she is in need of care. She has no friends of her own and all her siblings have passed. I work a very demanding job which has me away from my house at least 12-hours a day. I worry constanly about mom falling and more importantly not eating. She has a history of not eating and her last visit to the hospital was due to not eating, dehydration and back pain. The owness has all fallen on my shoulders and I'm tired and partially resentful this aging process has fallen on me And I feel guilty for feeling the way I do. Can anyone help to guide me on how I can best handle what is in front of me? I would love to have some ideas and support that can help me plan for the future. Is anyone out there going through a similar situation? I'd love to hear from you.
