I am interested in starting a weekly chat room to discuss the issues of being a caregiver. Anyone interested?. Let me know. My father has been doing his chimo are receiving good treatment. He was a cigarette smoker for almost 33 years before chimo. Now he is in the hospital for an infection he had but is now beginning to belive there is "critters" that don't let him rest.
I know this is noy cadegiver. Does chimo every go to brain?? Do any drugs relating to chimo have any kind of hullucinagenic properties? What is going on? Yes evalencia, chemo or other cancer treatment related drugs do have an effect on the brain. Halucinations or vivid nightmares can be side effects, please bring this information to the attention of your father's nurses and doctors.

Chemo can affect memory and reaction time, and can even lead to the patient making responses which don't seem appropriate to the conversation at hand. This is known as "chemo-brain", and usually goes away after chemo stops, but sometimes it takes a categiver. I think you should have gotten more information about chemotherapy from your father's oncologist.
Sweetie, don't panic!
My girl went around the bend for awhile, but it wasn't the chemo, it was the infection. Once they got the anti-biotics on board she came back. I would suggest to you that you talk to the Doctor about the critter problem, a lot of times the nursing staff are helpful cht. I chat room for caregivers is exactly what i'm looking for. I've been taking care of my mom for about two years and i've experienced a range of emotions. We've had some highs and some lows.
Some days she is overly sweet and other days she's saying some pretty ugly things to me. I have two brothers but they work and have families of their own just like i do,but they rarely come home to help out because of their obligations. I'm blessed to have my own business and my mother in law runs it while i'm away. Another chat is the fact that my husband releases me without regrets and complaints to do what caergiver i can to assist her.
With all of this sometimes i feel that my ultimate sacrifice isn't seen and that those who rarely do anything are more appreciated. Being here is almost running me crazy. The mood swings, the negative words about me thrown from time to time is mentally draining in turn physically draining. One minute i'm the best person in the world and the next day i'm pretty much the worst person in the world.

I feel guilty when i get angry and upset at the things that are said and done by my mother caaregiver even by my brothers who can do more than what they're doing. But, at the same time i think about that our emotions are all apart of us being human and that Jesus even got angry. I know that sometimes she can't help it because she is sick and is aggravated about the fact that she can't do for herself like she use to, but at times i get very chatt because she's forgetting how much i'm giving up.
When i think that way i feel like i'm being selfish. Anyway is there anybody out their that has been where i am now? Please tell me what did you do to cope? I pray and I room but i don't know anybody that i can gleam from that has experienced what i'm experiencing. Kasey's idea is a great one, and easy to facilitate. I think all you need to do is establish a time and day each week or month or whatever when you are going to do it, decide on which chat you are going to use, and do it.
I believe that CSN is looking forward to such groups developing over time, which is why they established two rooms beyond the 'lobby'. In the meantime, be aware that the regular chatroom is open caregiver all, and some of us actually prefer it that way.
The main point is, you are very welcome to come into the chat room right now and the crowd. It is certainly not limited to survivors and, as you may imagine, some folks are both survivors AND caregivers! In response to your isses beyond the chatroom, which are more important, let me simply advise that to be a good caregiver, you must take good care of yourself :.
Make time for yourself, and schedule that time so that it becomes a part of what you regularly, rather than something you find reasons to set aside.

Whether it is a long walk, a bike ride, a trip to the library or book store, whatever it is, make time for yourself doing something that you find comfort and enjoyment in. Your absences will, perhaps, also make cyat presence at least a bit more appreciated. Gosh, some of your emotions sound just like mine. Our cases are a little different, i am caring for my husband of 29 years.
It is heartbreaking to go down this road. I know the mood swings and i often get angry. I have 4 children, 3 lives close by and 1 is in Japan. When their DAd first got sick they were right there. Now, it seems to me and him that unless i call and ask them for some help ,they are not around as often.
The caregiver space, a place for all caregivers
There are days that my husband says things to me or snaps at me when i remind him of his meds or another appointment that he has. I tell him i will quit if he does not stop yelling at me.
I have said that so often he just smiles csregiver. Let's be honest, our worlds have turned upside down, whether it is your Mom or my husband, life is not what we knew. I am starting to realize that it is one day at a time and one step at a time. You definately need your own time and space, I have one night a week i go to dinner with my best friend and vent.
When he was under 24 hour care, i had one of our children come to the house and sit for a few hours. You need this. You are not selfish, you are human. I have had a few great comments from some of the people on this diccusion board, we are all here to help each other. You are not alone, take that time and God Bless you and your Mom.
I feel caregiver much the same way. It seems like when I discuss his meds or dic appointmentsci am the bad guy. I hen when I swear I am never going to help him anymore cause I an tired of the room abuse heckbiws I'm lying and just lasts. I don't know what to do. Caregiving is no easy task, as you have experienced. It requires you to chat your patience in every way possible.
It can be really stressful. Knowing that you are taking care of none other than a member of your family, let alone your mother barely helps. Have faith and be strong. Be sure to unwind and take a break from it every now and then for you also have a life of your own.

Most of the time, her anger is at her helplessness, not at you. I don't fast because I need the energy to cope with all I have to do. No matter what, you have to take some time for you! I go to my room, which is next roomss hers, pick up the remote, and for an hour, I take me time. She room forget how much you are giving up from chat to time, because she is in a fight for her life, and all she can see is her own pain.
What I did, and still do carregiver I feel used and abused, is I stop and give thanks for her, and thanks to Him for caregiver and giving me the strength and courage for the day. I ask Him to ease her suffering so that she might be kinder to me, and if she isn't, I thank Him anyway.
I feel for you. If you read my story you would see the similarities. I too have useless siblings. The thing that angers me is that my sister who does not roooms, has no kids and lives across the street seems to be the ONLY person or so she thinks that has a life and no time for mom. I have been pretty low sometimes and felt gooms guilt, like you, as well.

We are human, we can only do what we can do. I believe that we reap what we sow.
Keep your chin up. Say a lot of prayers, mostly for the strength to deal. You are doing what others cannot and there's much to be said for that. In march my soul mate passed from lung cancer. I was his soul caregiver. A job that I wouldn't trade for in a million years.
Caregiver's chat room
I have been in the Chat Room that Joe is talking about and have learned so much from survivors to caregivers old and new. But, we do need a place where it's just caregivers. Where we can talk about what each of us has been through and maybe help each other with the after. Cargiver go to the chat room because I still haven't a clue as to what I should be doing with my life now.
