If someone would have told me that I would be the primary caregiver not only to my mother but to my husband's mother as well while I was in my 20's I would have laughed my head off. Who is laughing now ????
I just turned 26 years old have been the primary caregiver for my moter in law since I was 25. Now my mom is also living with us & she is on dialysis. Plus my mother in law can barely get around and also lives with us.
I cannot believe how very tired I am. WHile doing all this I am also a homemaker & I home school our 5 year old son !!!! I feel like I am being insensitive but this is so hard.
My husband is a good man and really helps the best that he can but he works long hours. WHen he gets home though he makes me sit on the couch and rest because he's worried I am going to give out I guess.
I know this isn't about budgeting but I just needed to let this out. Has anyone else ever went through something similar ???
I have to go cook. I am making 6 meals a day now because of my mom's special kidney diet.
Please keep me in your prayers.
