I HATE when people say, you have to take care of yourself, go for a walk, etc.  My mother cannot be left alone.  Do they think I am so stupid I don't know it would be good to get out.  I can only afford an aid for when I work. 

And please, no obvious solutions, I have looked into government help, my siblings do not live near me. 

thank you

I have no patience for obvious answers. And no, mom’s neighbors can’t help, nor can her church. Hang in there!

I'm with you!  People are always telling me to take care of myself but, hey, how can you do that? It's not easy.  I'm a caregiver to my husband and I do have some outside help but I could use more, but it takes money and we don't have alot.  I feel like I'm pushed into the ground some days...and nights...don't forget nights.  And we have 2 little dogs that are always wanting something.  It seems like every time I want to sit down for a few minutes somebody needs/wants something!  I don't need these little dogs in my life right now but that's the way it is at least for the present.  Being a caregiver is very hard.  Hey!  I'm venting!! It does help.
