What can I do if I feel my dad is to dependent on me?
My dad expects me to have all of the answers to everything, I feel that i have become the parent to my parents. If I don't answer the phone, whether i am not at home or busy, he will keep calling over and over. He expects me to come over every day and sometimes it just is not possible. My parents have a live in care giver and sometimes even the care giver calls to much for things that could wait. I am a wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, etc,. I have a lot going on in my life and so many roles to play. I am feeling overwhelmed. My mom has severe dementia and needs more help now. I feel like my dad gets jealous because it is not all about him. Their care giver is a man and now I have to help my mom shower, am taking her to the dentist this morning, the list goes on and on. I have my own health problems and some days I just can't function at all. Please, any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
