It was common knowledge that i could not accomodate my mom and dad due to their illnesses and old age. So now that time is running out with nurses and everyone is tired of helping out my mother asked me if we were going to pick them up to come stay with us for over 3 months. I was just going to visit. I was floored and shocked. My mom suffered a stroke so she is no t herself anymoe but I could not believe to ask that when she knew already it was not possible. My sil who is having repairs done on her house wanted her to go to her house but the house is under construction and there would be no one home. She lives 40 mins away so then my mom thought of me since I am a sahm. But afte caregiving for 17 days by myself without my husband and son I feel as if it is never enough for her. I am psychologically drained and stressed out. Meanwhile I suggested going to my other brother's house 10 mins away from her house to sleep over and then spend the day at their house. We live 2 hours away and what about the doctors and getting around? I am so depressed and need advice.....

I know you feel very guilty because you want to do more and can't that's normal I would see about a part time home care nurse most insurance plans, or even medicare will help with the cost, you should not feel bad that your mom needs more can than you can personaly provide go to the disability office and see if they can help. I'm sorry your having a rough time but don't let small minded people get the better of you it's easy for them to give advice when they are not in your shoes.
