"You are doing nothing!"
As I read the comments I keep noticing a common theme of the caregiver being accused by the person they care for of "you don't do anything for me" .Now sometimes this complaint is by itself or sometimes is also combined with the following of "If ------- was here he/she would take better care of me." The aforementioned unnamed sibling/child that never helps being the person named. I have also noticed that no matter if the caree is of sound mind or not these comments are still made.I know that there are psychological /medical explanations for these statements.I was just curious as to the extent that caregivers had experienced these comments.I would like to hear from anyone that is a caregiver that despite doing everything you could be reasonably expected to do,everyone's circumstances are different,that you are still told that "you don't do anything for me!."Please share your stories.
