Hello, let me say first and foremost I was totally taken back when I found this website. Not sure if this will work or not, but at this point I don’t have much choice in at least trying.
2 years ago I dropped everything to go care for my mother, I’ve been her primary caregiver ever since. I am single, 1 child currently a struggling college student, so I didn’t have to worry about a spouse involved or anything.
Sibling wise there is myself, my sister, and 1 brother who died long ago. My mother never remarried after my father cut out on us when i was 5 years old.
Her siblings are pretty much up in age just like she is and or passed, so it was pretty much up to me or my sister and she is on disability with Lupus and Fibromyalgia as well as lives out of state.
I am doing my best to keep my mother out of a facility etc. She is scared to death of going to one, so I’m just trying to keep her at home.
When I arrived we moved into a better place than the one she was staying in, but over time i have depleted all of my savings and pretty much month to month now. Recently some extra things came up and the next thing I knew we got behind on bills.
I was not able to get the rent in on time this month and they will serve papers on the 15th of Nov. By then the total would be around $1500 with the late fee’s going up $10 per day. Once they serve papers then court fees ad an additional $200.
$1500 would take care of this months rent and I just got great news from my sister. I have finally convinced her to move in here with us and help the best she can, but she can’t make it until after the 1st of the year in 2019.
Once she is here I can go back into the work force because she can be here to help care for my mother throughout the day time.
I had a colonoscopy and other tests recently and hoping for a good report, my hope is that it’s just stress that has my digestive system off track and other symptoms I’ve been experiencing.
Well as Tony Robbins teaches, “Everybody has a story”, and that’s my life/story for now. Whatever you can contribute we give much gratitude for, thank you.
