Not Much Left in the Tank
I'm a 37 year old male that's a 24/7 caregiver to my 81 year old father who has Alzheimer's and dementia.
I have 2 older brothers and 3 sisters who don't have time to help out with Dad. Dad is more then a handful.
Besides being a handful he always has had control issues. So pretty much everything he has ever done has always been right. And everyone else was always wrong and what we did was never good enough.
Now, with his old age,Alzheimer's and Dementia he has taken it to a whole new level. But with having a few brothers and sisters you would think that I would be able to get a little help? Nope, they all have there own things to do at home and in life.
But me on the other hand is expected to put my life on hold. So now with all the stress of taking care of father 24/7 he has come to the point where he is getting up at crazy hours of the night not knowing where he is and that leaving me to only getting 4 hours of sleep a night.
But no one seems to care about my health or sanity as long as dad is okay. So my question is....how much should be expected of one person?
