Hi I am a caregiver to my Mother, I also have a husband who is very ill, and a 90 year old father who now in the last few days is needing some care himself.. I feel torn in a million directions.. All of them have appointments !some 35 miles away.I am trying to balance it all out and feeling rushed and anxious. Who comes first? I have no help from family members. The ill husband is driving the dying Mother back and forth so I can now and then get a break. If someone deals with this can you tell me how you balance things out! Who do you pick to be sad depressed miss an appointment. I was on the phone Two solid hours yesterday just ordering medications,for all.

Love Diane
