      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

My Mother is dying

Recommended Posts

She has been really sick for 3 years now and has almost passed away a few times (cardiac arrest). She has miraculously pulled through each time but has been on dialysis and in and out of the hospital and  keeps declining. Now she has a rare kidney complication called calciphylaxis. It's a terrible disease. Painful and she is in a hospital two hours away to get the daily treatments. She is not responding to treatment and is dying slowly. She is only in her fifties. 

I am an only child and literally have no other family other than my husband and my children. I really don't have any close friends either because of moves and just  the way my life has turned out  which only exacerbates the stress I'm in. I don't think my husband understands what this is like for me especially since weve had so many close calls and she has pulled through so many times. 

I have a great job and acquaintances at work but no one really knows what I'm going through. 

I am just going through motions and don't know how to cope and need someone to relate to and some  support.

Dear Junebug13,

I am very sorry to hear about your mom's condition. I know caregiving is a rollercoaster. And there are so many raw emotions. Please know you are not alone. We are all here to listen and support you in anyway we can.

I find this website very helpful. Its called AgingCare. I think you will find a lot of good information and support from others going through the same challenges of caring for a parent.

I don't know if you want to consider talking to a counsellor or joining a support group in the community. It never hurts to reach out and get as much support as possible.

Thinking of you. Sending all my thoughts and prayers.
