Being a carer is not easy…
It’s emotionally draining.
It’s physically draining.
But regardless, it can be rewarding.
Those that have been, or are caregivers to family members, or friends, will understand the above. As for my situation, while mum is in a mental health care place, I am dealing with her personal affairs, checking on her home, supporting her, while dealing with my own affairs and concerns.
It is just me. I am all mum has. I am her only daughter.
I am broken at times and bounce back. But I wonder how long I will last in this current situation, until me and mum are living together.
I am still trying to get an additional job to ease my financial situation.
I could list further worries, but this is more concerning my mum and that part is private to her.
