Alone Caregiver Barely Hanging On

Message 31 of 31

I am soooo tired. I am a 61 year old daughter/primary caregiver for my 81 year old mother who has lung cancer, kidney failure & diabetes. It's been 2 years. I'm alone. No one to talk to. No shoulder to cry on. I am so full. I have diabetes. I suffer from depression, sleep apnea, diabetes and I am bi-polar. 


My mother will NOT accept help from ANYONE else. NO agencies, services, etc. She is too proud and too private.


No one can solve this. I just keep going but it would be nice to sound off or just go someplace and scream!
