Caregiving Dad Angry and Resentful
by Helpless Stress Head
My mum has terminal cancer and she does complain a lot but my dad has got to the point where he is angry with her all the time and he wants me there constantly. As soon as I arrive he knocks off and wants to be waited on.
I work full time have a family and live 1.5 hours away and my house is going to the dogs and I am stressed to the max. I am an only child. I just want to know why dad is being so self centered when we know mum doesn't have long. Mum has given her life to him looking after him all the time and he can't give her a few months care!
Maybe it is a man thing as my husband is now resentful that I am spending so much time with mum - do they ever grow up?
