Subject: caregiver times 3
I'm a single Mom of a teenage daughter and giving care to my Mom since my Dad passed away 3 weeks ago. My Mom is not dying but is in need of therapy to help get her up out of bed. She suffers from morbid obesity and has a colostomy. To make matters worse my brother is in a drug/alcohol abuse program, just out of rehab and is not much help for myself or my Mom. He can't drive so I am the designated driver of the family and have to shuttle him to meetings everyday. I work on the weekends and desperately want to get a fulltime job. We are slowly getting the help we need but nothing is solid yet.
I don't know what to do. I am also in debt and need to make money to pay off my bills. I guess I just need to get this off my chest and see if other have been through tough times. It's good to know that one is not alone.
