quote:Originally posted by M.Janell: My precious daughter has been with me since last November to help me take care of her dadwho is 76 with vascular dementia. However over the last few months she has kind of taken over the household. I let her know how I felt last week and she got all huffy and went home. Believe it or not, things have gotten easier to deal with around here since her departure.
quote:Originally posted by RevSasha:quote:shearbear As caregivers we go through the grieving process daily. One of the stages of grief is anger. We all get there. There are days when I'm just plain mad at the world. Just had to tell my mother, who lives with us, (she's not the patient) that I just could not talk to her right now. She insisted on running her crap on me again, I could no longer hold my tongue told her to shut up and get the hell out of my house. I "ran out of nice" with her.
