Hi, I need advice… I am currently taking care of my mother who is ill. I have spend a year now at home 24/7 with her since I’ve been out of school. I have gave up so much, which I don’t mind… But it’s taking a hold on my mental health and I don’t know what to do. If my mother was getting better I wouldn’t be so upset but she’s getting worse and sitting, watching her… basically die away is so hard. And it’s effecting my little brother also. And my family members aren’t helping but I can’t say anything bc they pay the bills since I stay home with my mother. I am confused bc I suffer from depression and day by day I am going further away from God and its all scaring me, if anyone has any advice I would greatly appreciate it.

you should be super proud of what you are doing taking time out of your daily things to look after your mother. i can see how looking after her 24/7 can have a great impact on your well-being. school is still so important and with your schedule trying to balance it is a struggle. do you think you and your family could afford putting her into a care home? if you feel like your comfortable with looking after her then that’s okay, obviously you just want the best for her. putting her in a care home keeps both of you safe as you could go back into school , look after yourself and she would be in a safe place. it would really be terrible to watch your mother pass away right in front of you but i hope you know that you gave up so much for her and that she would be extremely proud of you. sorry if my response was unhelpful i am just trying to help. <3 i love you and your mother i’m wishing all the best for you both x
