Hi, I am a 22yo woman who has recently become a full-time (~8am-5pm, dad helps when he's home from work) caregiver for my 55yo mother who had a severe stroke several months back. Before the stroke, my mother was extremely independent (despite many health issues, i.e. T1 diabetes, kidney failure, osteoporosis, etc), but now, she cannot walk on her own, or communicate effectively. This has taken an extreme toll on her mental state (she has a history of depression, not suicidal, but where she shuts down, and pushes people away), and she hates having people take care of her, especially me, her daughter (revered roles). She has had these daily breakdowns where she starts crying and trying to tell me things that I cannot understand (because her speech is completely unclear) and I don't know how to help her. I can't really give her space because she tries to get up on her own, and she'll fall and get hurt if she does. I don't know what to do when this happens. Please help.
