How do you recommend family deal with compassion fatigue? I'm currently my mother's carer until I move out, I have been for years, and it's taking a toll on my mental health. I only have 2 more months until I leave but caring for her is hard on me. She often says she wants me to live my life and that I don't need to take care of her but she relies so heavily on me to get everything done that it feels like I can't, hence me leaving so drastically. I want to enjoy my time with her and not feel like she is burdening me because of her illnesses.
