Accepting "advice" and "help".
This is actually probably more of a vent then a question. I get so angry and resentful when relatives offer "advice".. instead of doing something concrete to help. For instance, my moms younger sister is buying me books on caregiving This is after I shared with her my frustrations on getting my Mom to accept outside help to care for my Dad.
She has bought me books before on dementia and Alzheimer's.. so they are probably the same books I already have in a corner somewhere.. I probably learn more just by actual experience and by visiting websites like this. I have told her I have a Kindle and have read anything and everything already that I thought could be of any help.
I don't know.. maybe its just me and I should be more grateful.... Ugh! What I really wanted is to have her help me talk to my mom and help me convince her.... not more books!
