I have been a live in caregiver for my grandmother for the past six years. She just moved into a nursing home two weeks ago. I know it is for the best, and I can no longer give her the care that she deserves. She still believes she is going to be able to come home, and she is fighting my dad and aunts that this is a permanent thing. I'm almost 28, and I have had more stress related illnesses this past month than ever. I suffer from migraines. I've missed several days of work, as an aide with special education. I can't seem to catch my breath. I've been put on antidepressants, too. My coworkers tell me that I am too sick for someone my age. I don't know how to stop and rest anymore. It has all been too much. My mom was sick and passed away 7 years ago as well. So I have been a caregiver for a long time. I don't regret it at all. I just need a break. Do you have any advice for finding balance after caregiving? What do I do now? It kind of feels as if I'm grieving, and feel guilty for feeling any relief. What are some things that have helped you find purpose? Any advice, prayers, and words of encouragement are greatly appreciated.
