I am caring for my mother. I am doing it
alone. It has been so hard. She was always a
difficult, controlling, demanding person. I
have been told to force her into assisted
living by friends. She actually could afford
assistance, but refuses to pay someone else.
She alienates medical help with the constant
criticizing. I am at the end of my rope.
Tried a caregiver support group and no one
in it was a caregiver! It is so frustrating
and some days I just feel like I can't go
on. I have tried calling the church. I have
contacted the Department of Aging; got four
hours of respite every three months. There
are no friends or relatives to help out.
