Is it a common thing to feel guilty every time you leave the person you care for. When I am at home I feel I should be with mum and when I am with mum I want to go home as I feel I am neglecting my family. I want to do the best for everyone and obviously feel Mum needs me more now if only to find the things she loses daily (i.e. hearing aid, purse, Teeth! etc) If it wasn't so sad it would be funny.
