I can truly sympathize, even though my situation is different from yours (dementia and a stroke). I find myself sighing a lot, even when I don't need to. I am so frustrated with the total lack of support or understanding from my husband's family. I feel very trapped some days and find it difficult to keep up with friends, much less see them. I would love to take a break away from my husband, just to regroup, but this seems very unlikely/impossible. So far, my health is holding up, but I am on more meds than before and some days that is not enough. I guess I am venting, too, as well as sympathizing. Try to find some time for yourself. I go to book club about once every 6 weeks. That's not much, but it helps. I take our dog for a walk at least once a day. I'm out, but nearby. I hope you can find help with your caregiving. We all feel overwhelmed, sometimes, and other caregivers understand. Feel free to vent any time!
