Having a Mental Day

Ever live your life all over again???
Well this is it again...and I feel another breakdown..
First I took care of my Dad...took over his finances downsized him, moved him into the nursing home and salvaged half their assets for Mom who never worked...

Then I took care of my Mom over night the caregiving changed from Dad to Mom...especially after dads death...I had to again downsize her continue overseeing her finances moving her into Independent living then assisted living and managing her care...

Well now Mom has been gone 6 months and my nightmare continues...now it is my aunt...I signed up a long time ago to be her POA so I am in charge of downsizing her, moving her into the nursing home and managing her care...

I really feel a mental breakdown coming down and I am sad, depressed and feel such a burden on my sholders...unless someone has had to care for an elderly relative they cannot understand...
I just want to cry...and say Why me??

Hi, first off none of this stuff is easy for anyone so cut yourself some lack. There are no easy answers or magic solutions to make it all go away. How I wish it were not so. I having been going through this with my Mom and yes try as I may I always feel guilty. You need to be strong for you. You will get through this. As I hope too also, this stuff on top of menapause really sucks. I stumbled across your blog and had to let you know that you are not alone. If you have been between a rock and a hard place for more years then you'd like to count then know many are in or have been in that chair too. No one talks about it because we all would like to paint rosy pictures. Take care
