Wish my Dad were Dead!

by ldg
(Dallas, TX)

My sister passed away unexpectedly and she was my parents' caregiver. I don't work and live close enough to now be the caregiver. My Mother is sweet but my Dad is demanding and controlling. He's not afraid of death. He's afraid of not being in control!


When I'm there he treats me like a slave when he's perfectly capable of doing tasks. But he'd rather be treated like a king. He's 79 and has had health problems and he keeps living because he's such a stubborn SOB! I know it is wrong but I wish he were dead!

my dad is 93 and I am 67, I am the only one to help him, and the other day he told me I was a damn smart ass, with that awful mean look on his face, I don't think I can take any more of his meanness.

I haven't been back there since, and that's 3 days ago. he has always been mean natured toward family, but sweet as pie to his friends. I had a picture of him here and I threw it in the trash, family can be your worst enemy. he is bad for my health. don't know what to do.
