    Why do I hate my life?

    #1) I wake up every morning to the smell of urine and bowel. I then get to bathe my 22 year old son and clean the up along with washing his bedding.

    #2) Refer to #1

    #3) while I have a caregiver coming in to help me daily I would really like to take a 2 week vacation somewhere with my husband. Of course, we get no respite care. We were put on the waiting list when he was in 2nd grade. He got to the top of the list when he was in the adult family home which they closed down last September (man I loved those 9 months). Now he's at the bottom of the waiting list again. Even if we were to get respite care, it would be for a day or two, not two weeks. I saw a two week Alaskan cruise. I would love to take that....so, if any of you know any wealthy people who would like to share, I would love to have a babysitter for two whole weeks. Yes, I know, I could pay for the babysitter for the price of the cruise, but then, well, we don't have money for the cruise, not that we really have money for the cruise anyway, but a person can dream.

    So, let's clarify: I hate my life and I get no vacation time. <sigh>

    so, just in case you haven't gotten my hint: VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT VENT

    and one more time VENT

    Sweetie, I'm sorry. Life does suck.
    I've got no comforting platitudinous bullshit to add.

    They should really start something where caregivers donate some of their time. I am a caregiver, and yes we don't make much but I would be willing to donate a few days for someone like you who needs a vacation.

    Sweetie, on the positive side. The governor of Oregon is trying to cut caregivers and nursing homes assistance by 50%, for the budget. I hope for you, this does not happen. *Hugs*
