I took this survey online and scored a 69. Anything above a 36 means you are overburdened as a caregiver.
I am fortunate though to have help with mom as my neighbors who is also mom's cousin and his wife are right across the street and have helped us out a lot.
Mom got a call from her sister this morning...she is coming to ohio in 2 weeks (the weekend of my brother's birthday) for a visit.
We are B-R-O-K-E. And I am NOT in the mood to hear about how bad life is for my uncle. He is laid off and is going crazy because of it.
He is a workaholic and goes crazy if he is off work for a day.
Me, I relish the fact that I am able to be off work and be with mom for an extended period.
Now, are there resources for caregivers through places like the Cancer Society that I can get?.
