My dad died in May, he suffered from Dementia. My mom sits & does very little all day. I have enrolled her in an adult daycare once a week (that is all she will go) & she goes to a small senior group once a week at our church. She depends on me for everything. She will not drive & won't even go to church unless I go although there are others who would take her. She is afraid to go outside for fear of falling even though my brother pays for a monitoring device which she wears 24/7. I feel so guilty but I feel I have to back off & not live her life for her. Sometimes I feel like she died with our father. She will not even write her own checks & feels that since I was appointed guardian for her I should do everything.

Mom living with me. Family stress all around. Sister won't give me a break. She's a shit. Mom doesn't want to go to nursing home and I don't want here there either. This is so brutal. I'm on the verge of losing my job. Have gained about 15 pounds over last couple months and I'm already obese. No privacy or respect.Just feel like giving up. I am giving up. It's not a decision...
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
