Busy,That why I have not been on

Who ever said taken care of your parents is a easy task!! My dad is in a residential home,He does like it there thank haven.He still is a handful..I do not know, if it is a elder thing.But he is very needed and how he is very stubborn.I am at the home everyday trying to help the nurses with him. I give all nurses a big huge applause:) I could not do what they do!!!He thinks he is the only one that lives there,And that he should be taken care of right way...Do not get me wrong I love my dad..But there as to be a time for me! I just wished my other sisters would go see him.Since he as been there just me and two brothers go from ten of us..If they would take turns it would not be so bad..Some days I just do not want to go..Then I see him alone in the room I feel bad and also feel I go!!

Dont feel bad for taking a day to yourself. Even healthcare workers will tell you that. You cant be there for him right if you are resenting it. And I think it is the feeling of helplessness that makes them so needy. I know I hate it when I am unable for any reason to do things for myself that I would normally do.
