Tired of Caretaking for My Dad

by Kristyne
(Nevada)

My dad has had strokes and continues to have little ones too. He has had 1 heart attack and open heart surgery. He is lazy. He pays nothing. He does nothing.


He calls me 7 or 8 times a day for stupid stuff. He and I have never had a good relationship and he is totally dependent on me. He is the king of quilt, manipulation, and lies through his teeth to the doctors. He is a vet and resent this because he does not deserve everything free when there are men and women who need attention more than him.

If he blows his nose wrong he needs to be seen. He is a complete jerk. He is rude to my husband and does not respect my marriage at all. I have taken care of this miserable person for over 12 years and I am done. He needs to pass or I need some help. I resent him.
