My mum has just been told she has alzheimers I knew for over a year this was what she had but all the doctors said it was a mental breakdown until last week when they told us. I thought as I knew I would be OK but it's hit me so hard I can't stop crying I am finding it so hard to go on. I live with my mum I have been her carer for some years due to other health problems I can't talk to her as it will make her unwell I only have my dad and brother who don't understand and I get no help from them. I am all alone I have no friends just me and our dog. How do I keep going i know I have to make the most of out time but I can't so scared please any advice how I can stop feeling this way and look after my mum.
