My father had a mild stroke 3 years ago. He has always been somewhat of a grumpy person, and we have never been especially close. Since the passing of my mother, my father and I have spoken more, at least once a week. I live an hour away from him and am going to school. The behavior that emerges from the stroke is very hard and I don't know what to do. My father lose's his temper with anything and when I get upset as a result ( I usually cry) he tells me not to cry or says sorry. I think he starts to realize he is being a little harsh, but he continues to say harsh words to me. He does not have any other friends or family, I am IT. I want to find something for him to be interested in and to have fun, but I have no idea where to look. He lives in a smaller city and has lived there his whole life.
Any insight would be helpful. Thank you!
