Last night was the PITS. Even at an early bedtime of 9:30 (had to wake up at 6 to cook breakfast this morning) my elder would now and then wake me up for a bathroom break. She just fell down hard enough to have a head wound and she's weaker than before! It makes it even harder to use the bedside commode.
That means that I have to get up in the middle of the night to help her make poo-poo or pee-pee and that makes me want to scream. The bedpan part (yes, putting her on the goshdarn bedpan) is the absolute worst!
That exactly happened to me last night, except for the screaming because I don't want to wake the others.
Oh, do I want to catheterize her so I won't have to lose sleep over helping her go potty! And I want respite care, but I'm unemployed and can't drive. Who the heck can I turn to? I'm very frustrated beyond imagination! Help!
