Hello I am wondering if there are ever any other caregivers out there who feel lonely? I am taking care of my Dad so I am not alone but I still feel lonely. I am single and feel like I can't date since I am not working as a result of being a care taker. I am also not sure I am emotionally and mentally ready. I have friends but they don't understand what it is like for me and my family is not very much help. I am having a hard time since I wonder what will happen when my Dad dies. I know I shouldn't put my life on hold but in some ways I feel like I have no choice. I love my Dad and most days I feel in my heart that I am doing the right thing.
