My father constantly cuts me down and criticizes me. He thinks I tricked him into living with me, what should I do about his bad behavior?
My father has been living with me since September 2010, he is having a really hard time letting go of his independence, he constantly cuts me down or even sometimes try and hit me and cuss me out telling me I tricked him into living with me. His family (sister) up north wanted to put him in a home, but I didn't want that for him so I drove him back here to live with me. I am mentally and physically drained from his abusive language. He good for days then he has a spell and gets violent. I have a home care nurse for him 5 days a week while I work, he can't see nor hardly walk. He was a heavy drinker all his life and has absolutely no respect for no one ever. I am losing all my get up and go and feel like whats the point. Everyone warned me, but I wanted him to have a nice home where he could be taken care of and have his little dog with him so he could live out the rest of his life happy. I feel like I am just kidding myself that I can help him cause he doesn't want any help. The only other option is a home, as none of the family wants anything to do with him at all.
