Hi, my name is Arlene and I am caring for my mother at my home. She has stage 4 colon cancer and it has also spread to her liver. I am married and have three children, one teenager and the other two are out of the home. I have been taking care of Mom for a year now and I am exhausted, mentally and physically. I feel so all alone and scared of what's ahead. I get very little help from my brothers. I feel like I don't have a life, which I know sounds selfish, but my brothers go to work and have little time to spend with us and have their own families. When they do have extra time they do things with their families while I am always at home caring for Mom. I would do this for the rest of my life if I knew she would be ok but I am watching her health deteriorate and I am scared to death!
