NEVER GO HOME AFTER LEAVING

by Anne
(Pa.)

I sold my house because of neighbor problems, moved in with my widowed father and because of the housing market and the economy, I am stuck here.


I drive him all over and used to take him all over (he has no friends, they all died) but stopped because he tries to hook up with people in their 30's and 40's. He is 87.

My siblings are happy since I am a nurse (a crummy "profession" if there ever was one)and I guess they think that I am some angel of mercy who loves hanging out with old folks.

People...no matter what...don't ever temporarily move back with an elderly parent. You will be stuck and all of your siblings will breathe sighs of relief.

Don't be the one who is closest to home. Move 10 states away if you have to.

INSANITY BY ASSOCIATION
by: JoAnn

I understand completely. I have been "in charge" of my mom and it's really getting to me. She has Dementia/Alzheimer's and gets willful & angry if I try to tell her anything that she doesn't remember.

This gets tough when it comes to anything Doctor related as she resists it in the first place & really puts up a fight. My advice: make sure you have an alternate or you'll lose your mind, too.
