Would love to hear experiences of other’s – caregivers, family members, relatives – co-workers!
If you feel that you cannot go on one more day as a caregiver to your loved one, I have been there.
More than once, I felt like bashing the phone receiver into the wall after the 12th phone call of the night. I was answering the same question again and again – Mom was not retaining a word we discussed. Was she “fine”? Was it my imagination?
Why do I feel guilty? Should I feel guilty?
I learned a lot of these feelings and more are real. They are honest, frustrating and tried my patience on more than one occasion.
Would I do it all again? For my Mother? YES, absolutely.
