Just feel tired, nothing personal about anyone that I am taking care of, it's just me I am exhauseted, been doing this for over a year now...

Any one have any ideas as to how to keep up?

I currently take care of 3 people and I work and try to keep up the homelife...

I can not imagine taking care of three people, plus work and maintaining your home life. Do you have other people you can call in to help to give you a break for a few days? If not, have you tried the CSN network? I learned it was OK to ask for help as initially, I tried to do it all myself. Fact is, if you push yourself too hard, it won't help if you get sick too. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

The truth is there isn't really anyone else....It's me......
Thank U for your prayers they are greatly appreciated!
The hardest thing for me is to see them going through it, makes me sad!

I did it for over a year for one person, and thought I would break one hundred times. I always kept going.

A good (non-drug-prescribing) counselor helped me tremendously.

One day at a time, Faith.

Blessings to you.

I do just take one day @ a time and whatever goes goes, we take it step by step, seems to be easiest that way, cuz if I look at it long term I think of everything that needs to be done, and then it becomes overwhelming!
Thanks for the support! U all I'm sure a are doing a great job as well!
