Dad is Annoying the Crap Out of Me!

by KIMM
(Canada)

My dad recently moved in with my husband and I.


We have four kids, three still at home, 3 grand kids. My dad lived on his own for 22 years, him and my mom separated a long time ago. my mother has been gone for 10 years.

My dad was neglecting his epilepsy medications causing him to land in the hospital twice. The last hospital stay was because he was found wandering outside of his apartment late at night, not really knowing why he was out there.

Anyways, he lives with me now, he did not want to live alone anymore. I love my dad. I am the only one out of my 3 siblings that care for him. They all live less than 3 hours away and rarely even call my dad.

My family needs a break from my dad. He is annoying at times to the point of we can not watch TV, because he talks to us through the entire show.

He is very nosy, gets grouchy, complains constantly about his arthritis. I just need a break. He talks about the same things over and over. I am tired all the time cause it feels like i am constantly listening to him complain about everything.

He talks badly about my siblings behind their backs but won't say anything to them. He is very hard to be around all the time. Don't know how much longer I can do this.

It is affecting my husband, kids our relationship. How do I politely tell him to shut up?
