I care for my mom full time who is post polio, wheelchair bound, legally blind and who has had 3 strokes. I work full time and sometimes feel like I've stepped into the Twilight Zoen when I get home from work. At work life is pretty much normal, the usual office. Lots of chatter, comeraderie(sp?) I mean I work hard but it's still a pretty friendly office. But when I come home it's like I've stepped into the Twilight zone. It's such a contrast. My mom tries to keep her spirits up but it is hard as my dad just passed away this last November so she and I are still grieving. It's like I'm living in 2 different worlds. I still am able to get my mom out of the house. Out for lunch maybe a movie, to the mall but it's still constant attention as she needs help with pretty much everything. Just wondered if anyone else has the same feeling?
