Hi everyone, I feel like I've been a caretaker all my life. My poor husband it seems like I've put everyone ahead of our having a life. I've been responisble for my mother for yrs even though I have a brother. She lived w/us most of the time & we just had her for 2yrs when she broke her hip. That was tough since we had no life for 2yrs taking care of her. I am also raising my grandson since 4, he is 14 now & has chronic lyme & fibromyalgia. He's a good boy & I'm glad we could raise him but again we don't do much. I had to put my mother in a small ass't living since I was getting afraid to leave her, she's almost 89 but its still up to me to go over, take her out, bring her to dr's & if I don't I feel guilty. I just get tired & sometimes wish I had a life of my own.
