Before I was a carer -I had a history of anxiety and agoraphobia
so dealing with my mum and having to travel even though someone was driving me was tough really tough it kicked off in July when mums health level went down a lot – she has Dementia but is calm…
My mind and health have gone down since mum was in the care home only now just over one month locally
She May not even be allowed to stay there unless her health goes way down in which case they may then resonsider the CHC nhs funding which she did not get
I actually feel unwell and not up to dealing with it all, so we will see
I wonder someone said on here you can be really tired after you stop being directly the carer in the home? I think all the time you are doing it you are just not thinking enough about your own well being?
Did any of you hit the wall when your loved one went into a care home?
it is also not helping me tha t cannot visit my mum due to the anxiety and the body symptoms yes have contacted docotr
and got a prescription however concerned about side effects and being on my own if anything happens.
God its a real nightmare I hope I can come out of this as a sane person…I am numb in my mind so I have oncly cried once…
How can I find support maybe in my own town? are their local carer support groups too?
Thanks in advance
