1 point@nearlydead thanks for coming back and updating. I am in a similar situation. My mother died in 2006 and I was taking care of her for about 10 years before that. I live alone and don't socialize enough or have good support relationships. I keep going because I want to. Not for any other reason. I won't insult your intelligence w my lame advice but I do wish you well and hope things get better.
