Rising Alzheimer's Creates Strain on Caregivers

I am shortly quitting my life to return ‘home’ to care for my mother who has just been diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s. This is entirely the correct thing to do and i want to be with her as she goes through this most cruel and heartless illness. I did nursing care for many years so the physical aspect of it will not be a problem; watching her deteriorate in front of me and ultimately ‘losing’ her will though.
The depressing part is that for me, with no girlfriend, job, money, prospects, social life or holidays to give up, i am actually foregoing nothing in life nor am i leaving anything behind when i go.
Which is a pretty sad and pathetic indictment of the past 25 years of my life.
