I gave up work ten months ago to care for my mum, I also gave up my freedom as my partner &I live in with my parents. We can't go out , we can't go on holiday, its like our lives are on hold. Looking after my mum has been ok up to now, we have laughed , cried and really became close.But the last month my mum has been verbally &physically abusive to me, even in the street. I find this really upsetting&I sometimes I feel angry as I have given up so much to keep her out of a care home. She seems to hate me but loves strangers&other family members. I am thinking is it best for a someone else who is not so close to her to care for her, will it benefit her more.My dad cant cope with her &relies on me for most things although he is independent. Am I mean to want my life back???
