May I please ask you to pray for me?

I have had this for over 10 years, but these days it's completely consumed my life. It doesn't help that I live with and take care of two grandparents with dementia, and zero help from MY ENTIRE FAMILY. I am pretty sure that's it. But I have no choice. One day I will get my own life back. I have lived on my own and supported myself fully since I was 18. But because I am a good person with too big of care in my heart, I jumped right into caring for them, giving up all my comfort and hard earned life. Did I mention grandma is by far the most difficult, rude, ungrateful person I know. Anyway, please pray for me friends. PRAYERS NEEDED OVER HERE, please. I need to overcome this. God bless us all. Thank you all.

  • Hi

    Sorry you are having a hard time with the anxiety and have had it for a long time. I will say a prayer for you and all of the people who suffer and those who try their best to support us

    Take care

  • So sorry for you. One day you will get your life back. I am not a religious person but I will be thinking of you and the bad times that you are having. Could your grand parents go into respite for a while to give you a break

  • I really appreciate your response, and no not yet they are still very much aware. I also respect your honesty about not being religious. You still brighten my hopes. Thank you.

  • Sending a prayer for you all. xx

  • Sending a prayer for you. You will come through this.x

  • Oh my how I know what you are going through. I am going through the same thing. I have had anxiety for a while now. A year ago my grandmother had a stroke and because of that she is unable to take care of herself. I volunteered due to my kind heart to help her day to day. I love my grandma so much, but it can be a handful at times. While trying to battle with anxiety and taking care of her and husband it's alot on my mind. I pray that we both can overcome this and get our life back. We deserve it, will be praying for you

  • It's really comforting knowing that I am not alone in this. Yes, the hardest part is caring for them and trying to battle my anxiety at the same time. Thank you very much, you all will be in my prayers as well. We will get through this. Thanks again.

  • You're for sure in my prayers.. I'm sure everything will get much better and you're gonna get an even better life than you had before

  • Hi there,

    I'm so sorry your having to care for your grandparents on your own.

    For the sake of your own health and because you are very important, I would talk with your GP about your situation and find out what help is available for you. Please consider talking to a social worker and accessing help from them also. This will not only help you, but help your grandparents also.

    This is too much for one person to have to be doing on their own constantly, especially when your grandma can be abusive. You are human, not a machine. I always thought I had to be responsible for everyone and wanted to help and care for everyone and solve their problems. I am now run into the ground, ill and now need care and support myself and have done for the past 6 months. I am only 42 but housebound and in constant pain with fibromyalgia brought on by stress and inflammatory arthritis. My mobility is very poor, when this time last year I was able to run around for people constantly, now I am not much use to anyone.

    I pray that your situation improves and that you can access help. I really feel you need a break. You are worthy and deserving of a good life for yourself.

    Sending you hugs and best wishes 🌞

  • Hi
