Hi, my name is Eden and im 16. My mom has a neourolgical disease called Periferal Neuropathy. or CIDP. She has had this for 4 years. She has been able to walk up until a cople of months ago when her disease progressed rapidly. She was in a Nursising home for about 4 mounths because she could no longer stand, walk, use her hands, basically paralized and completly bed bound. But now shes at home. We dont have the finacial means to hire a care giver so I steped up to the plate and im going to be taking care of her now. I was just wondering if there are any teens who are care givers or if anyone has advice for me? My dad is alot of help also but its hard on him since he has to work and he sees his wife of 30 years dying. Its hard for me to hear my mom talk about wanting to die so much too. I love her verry much and im doing all I can.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
