WE ARE BRAVE BY SHAWN MCDONALD
I have become the sole care giver for my father the past two years since my mother passed. He is getting progressively more needy and although I am proud to be the person he can rely on, I am facing many challenges on top of it all. I have lost everything financially over the past six years since the economic crash.
I recently separated from my husband and am now alone trying to just survive financially. Taking time off work to care for my father does not help my financial situation. My only family, living in my same city, is my 21 year old daughter who is so wrapped up in her new boyfriend, she has all but dismissed herself from my life and is not willing to help with my father. My only sibling lives in Japan and doesn't seem to care what is going on here. To top it off, one of my dogs was attacked over the weekend by a neighbor's dog when we were leaving my dad's house, which required emergency surgery.
I feel so alone and feel like I have very little strength left to handle everything. I am grateful for all of the blessings I do have, but feel like I am at my breaking point. I am exhausted emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually and need some extra intervention. If you will pray for me I would be very grateful.
Thank you so much.
