So as most of you know I am the caregiver for my mother in law & also my own mother.
This week has been hard for my mom & I. We are extremly close and the Dialysis takes such a toll on everyone.
She is getting depressed feeling like she lives her life stuck to a machine which I can only imagine how she must feel. I am starting to be sad because it seems like no matter what my efforts it doesn't seem to help her to get better but the opposite.
On top of everything else my son has been sick since Saturday running a fever of 103.0 off and on. We took him to the E.R. they said it was viral and that the only thing we could do was give him motrin and somthing for his coughing and nose and let it run it's course.
On Sunday my husband catches what my son has and calls into work the first time in probably a year. He didn't work Sunday or Monday.
Then today I woke up with it. Sore throat, runny/stuffy nose, icky feeling all over with the startings of a low grade fever.
So not only am I sick and everyone in my house is either sick or disabled. I am pregnant, having to take my mom to dialysis 4 days this week, and MISERABLE !!!!
I feel bad to dump on y'all and I try not to complain but I just feel like I canot take anymore !!!!!!!!
