Care giver: People who care for the sick are at high risk for burn out. Both you and your mom need to be seen by your doctor. Please try to find something to do or a place to go to now and then to refresh you, e.g., a park, a book, a friend. Peace and good health.

Strep throat : If one family member has strep throat infection other members can catch it . Infection or getting burnt out can give feeling of being run down . Would be worth doings bloods, throat swab and resting.
