Caregiving is exhausting

Both mentally and physically, being my husband’s caregiver, is exhausting.

I haven’t had a solid 6 hour night’s sleep since October. Mind you I said 6 and meant 6 because the most I seem to get is 4 or 5.

I’d be thrilled with 6, ecstatic with 8.

My back is in constant pain from helping him up from the floor when he insists I don’t ‘need’ to get help.

I just spent an entire hour putting this month’s worth of his medications together.

Yep, my back is killing me now.

I haven’t had a break from this in three years. I am very, very tired.

I am holding on to my sanity by a thread.
