Ok, so now I am angry. Maybe I am going through the stages of grief. Grief for my dead life, hopes, dreams. I am so stuck and don't know where to turn. Hubby wants to pack his mom up and send her back home. Of course there are a billion reasons why she should stay and just as many for going. Every day is a struggle. A struggle for me with her, a struggle for her with everything. If I could have a good cry I might feel better but I have been stuffing everything for so long that if I started I wouldn't stop for days and days.

Would it be easier for you if your mil goes back home? Maybe this is a good thing. I can't remember your other thread. I will look for it and read it so I know what is going on.

Have a good cry, it will probably do you good. It is good to get the emotions out. Remember that we are all here for you.

Hugs, Karen

Thank you Karen but I haven't cried for so long that it doesn't come easy anymore. Yes it would be much easier if she went back but much more dangerous for her. Even if she was in assisted living she falls so easily and how long would it be before she was found? She does not speak loudly and can't yell very loudly. It is a catch-22. darned if she does and darned if she doesn't.

On another subject....I have looked at some of the posts here and some of the issues that are being dealt with and I feel like I am a whiner. I don't have any serious problems and am not on any meds except for low thyroid. I feel as if I shouldn't be posting here.

I got exhausted just reading yr post_lol. You have a ton on your are one strong cookie...I think mil would be better off in assisted living-we put my gandmother there and it was terrific, they check on you all the time if you nedd it, so try not to feel guilty and do it. My grandmother had her pride and did not want to be a "burden" to us and was less depressed when she moved there=lots of people and activities. Sounds pretty good-when can I move in? LOL

Take care-keep posting, you are so not a whiner
