Visitors and handling loved ones
I am in a hard place with my elderly dad. He is a handful and can not do anything for himself. Is handicap and very not clean. he is also a very selfish man who wants what he wants and others be damned.
I can barely get up and do anything for myself lately. Any drama or anything out of the normal just sends me to ER. However, he plans to try to come stay with me in a few months to see me. He is totally unable to be alone or give himself shots or clean himself. He falls a LOT! There is just no way to handle him when I can barely handle myself day to day. he does not care what it puts me through.
Does anyone else have family that they have to say no too but it hurts to do so? How do you handle it? I am freaking out. Makes me sad that it is too hard for me to travel myself right now to see him either. But those with severe nausea and fatigue, I am sure most of you just stay to yourself most days. Anyone else have advice on how they manage to stay alone and care for themself because they must?
I appreciate the input. May you all have a lovely holiday. I am beat down and not even seen anyone yet. Plus seeing anyone this time of year is scary. No way do I want to be around anyone who recently traveled in these crowds!
