30 Emotions Every 24 Hours
I have not written on this type of site before so bear with me.
I have been caring for my elderly father now for 3 years since mother passed away. We moved dad here that long ago as we could tell or at least suspect that he was declining in health matters and as well the upkeep on his home was too much.
We moved him, put the house up for sale (after a ton of repairs and expense) and moved him into a nice place not far from us. We had heard from friends that they too had done some of this in the past.
Once here, the issues started cropping up a little at a time and are now these issues are so time consuming and seemingly insurmountable that my emotions seem to get the better of me on a daily basis..and run full circle, from frustration, anger, tears, the whole thing....I am so tired that I could take a nap for a year, I think.
Is everyone else on here like me or am I just being difficult?
The issues seemed doable several years ago, but with my own health issues, a job, our own home and now his to take care of...it is getting difficult to get out of bed in the morning. Everything from changing light bulbs to taking out the trash to "shouldn't we (you) get the gardener out here today?" "My cable TV keeps acting up and I want to change carriers, call 2-3 of them and see what kind of deal you can get".
Seems like I have bosses everywhere....husband, work and now Dad....overwhelming to say the least. I really would like to hear from others so I don't think I am the only one and have become too sensitive for this....thank you in advance.
