I am feeling very selfish, I think. Everytime we need to spend money, it's always because husband needs something. I never get anything for myself & feel resentful. We don't have much money and I get fearful and more depressed everytime we dip into savings.

We live far from any shopping, so I can't even go to a mall or thrift shop to look even if I don't buy. I buy something on eBay now & then, but feel guilty that I spent the money -its always things for the house that we really need anyway. How do you overcome resentment that every dime goes for the person who needs the care & none for the caregiver?
