okay, i'm 17. my mom is so stressed and i want to help her. two years ago she put my grandma in a nursing home. we couldn't take care of her anymore. she has diabetes and alzheimer's. my mom is really having a hard time. she feels guilty for putting my grandma there. and she cries so much because she misses her. shes so devoted to my grandma. she goes to visit her everyday unless she doesn't feel well. my mom has ulcers and all this stress is making her so sick. today she was so upset. she feels bad for not wanting to go visit my grandma. somedays she just doesn't want to go because she is so drained from all the worrying. i told her today that she shouldn't feel bad because if she was in a nursing home, i would want to see her, but i wouldn't want to see her sick everyday. she thinks shes such a bad person for feeling the way she does but i tell her all the time that its fine. she feels selfish and she shouldn't because no one wants to have to live like that, seeing their parents sick all the time. i try to talk to her all the time but she still feels bad. any advice on what i can say to her to make her feel better?
