Hi everyone, well as the heading says I have had enough and feel guilty but feel I can't do this anymore. Going on4 years caring for mum and it feels like it is driving me mad. Marriage suffering now because all I think and talk about is my mum and friends don't seeem to come around now as all I talk about is mum. I don't want to go anymore everyday, I am sick of cooking dinners every day, cleaning every day, repeating myself 50 times a day, sorting money, having wait in for hours when council need to call, getting called in middle of night by lifeline. We do have 4 carers going too everyday to give meds but we do most of the work. If mum knew me I would not mind but she is not even aware she has family now, she does not even know her own name! All mum does is get up eat, put back to bed to sleep, up again to eat then back to bed and so it goes on and on and on, day in day out. I know I should see my doctor to sort myself out but I feel guilty then I think why should it get to this state and why have the powers that be let it. I have contacted social services but all I get is "she is safe" . I just want to walk away, there I have said it, but oh does it make me feel bad. What do I do please. Mum completely refuses respite for a week and she is so advanced she can't go to a day centre, she can't see much so no tv or reading, nothing but sleep. She sleeps like a baby and I am awake all night with worry and now resentment and I hate myself for it.
