im living with my gran
she is very ill and has no prospects of recovering she is heavily depressed herself and talks to me sometimes about "wishing she wouldnt wake up" her death is inevitable but recently I have noticed a sudden decline in her health she has been a smoker for 50 years and she cannot walk for more then 10 paces without having to take a seat and catch her breath back. She is an asmatic (sorry about the spelling) and its making me depressed with the prospect of her dying and the fact that I cant make her happy.
She refuses to go to a nursing home and to a doctor or the hospital but she really needs to get some help she continues to smoke and I feel powerless to stop her.
I can see wheres shes coming from now its too late and quitting would make her unhappy so might as well die mildly happy.
Im so stuck with what to do I have many other problems going on for me at the mo which I will post underneath as a link cos I cant get from here but I was hoping you might be able to help me out.
Im basically her carer at the moment as well as being at college
and im really worried because she is agrophobic and im really worried that I will find her dead on the couch.
Because I have spent so much time with her recently I have got really attached to her and I will really miss her if she dies what can I do!!!
yo dude. i am in the same boat. my grans children ( my mum and my uncle) are horrible people. i think its something to do with their generation they dont understand enviromental issues or family values they only have possesions and greed but anyway i was forced to live with my gran. she does my head in with her non stop talking especially when im trying to watch tv but o well she lets me live here for free while i fix my life and in return i keep her company and try to clean up her house for her. my advice to u would be to be strong. be a man. take things as they come. the end is inevitable for all of us, just try to enjoy your time here and try to give more than you recieve and stay happy
