Well, I ended up going to the doctor. He said that how I feel at times sounds like I am having panic attacks. That along with my usual Anxiety. He perscribed some medicine for me to take, I haven't took any yet. I am trying some relaxation exercises and those seem to help.

To anwser a question from my last post: yes, if I were not home my grandma would be in a nursing home. I have even overheard my mom tell other family members that. No one seems to want to get involved. My uncle, her son, has been asked repeatly to come over for several months and has not. He never calls anymore either. There is really no where for her to go.

Hi Tinkerwitt,

I'm so glad your grandmother has you to help with her care. Thank you for that update from your doctor's appointment. It's good you're also taking care of yourself even though that can be hard in the midst of caring for someone else.

Hugs,
