i have been the caregiver for my mom for the past 4 years. I too feel frustrated that she wont do things for herself and she is perfectly capable of it. and it makes me feel bad that I am angry with her cuz she is the one that has cancer. i know she is depressed, cuz all she wants to do is sleep. but she wont go to counselor. she expects me to be her everything. Friend, caregiver, daughter, mother. My mothers last treatment was march 2012. she is physically able to things for herself she just doesnt want to. I have tried being nice, tried being mean. i even told her that i wouldnt buy groceries unless she went. so if you have any ideas please share. thanks.
