MY mom suffered a devastating bilateral midbrain stroke 2 years ago. She barely survived and after 6 months of hospitals, she's home with me & my husband. I'm 35 & an only child with no family. I have a homecare attendant helping me but everyday is a struggle. She no longer wants to do her exercises or therapy. She's stubborn & just wants to sleep all day. I know that without exercising, she will shortly stop walking & I will have no choice but to put her in a nursing home. I'm dreading that day but how much do I push?? I scream, plead & cry. My husband & I are totally stressed out and no longer have lives. When do you raise the white flag??? Please advise, anyone.
