This Week's Carenote - 11/22/11

I am a single mom to my 10-year-old son and sole caregiver to my 88-year-old mother, who has dementia and several physical disabilities.  She has lived with me for four years and there is no outside help at this time. I feel alone since I do not have a support system. My family lives several states away. What do I need to know in order to help myself and son through this process? I need support more than my son as he has friends and activities with which to refresh himself. rections for helping me keep a strong positive attitude and fighting the feeling that I am disappearing/evaporating/melting would be greatly appreciated.
