Tonight I realized this forum was available here. I wish I had found it before. There were many times I would cry from sheer exhaustion. Many times I didn't think I could take it for one more day. My mother passed away on Friday, and I had been her caregiver in my home. She had pulmonary fibrosis and lung cancer. It was a long stuggle. Now I am so glad she was here and died peacefully, and that I didn't give in to the exhaustion of this DD. Looking back, I don't know how I did it. I guess we just do what we have to do.
