You have to take care of your self first. in order for you to help him. See know matter how you do thing for him. He will feel that stress when you go to him.

Hudnuff, the sooner the better to find someone to drive or you might wind up like I did... unable to drive at all. My primary doctor found a med that I could take that helps with the white knuckling of driving... oh how I wished I would have taken that med seven years ago. Now I feel like I am trying to learn to drive all over again :P

I would love to get someone else to drive. I haven't had time to look into it yet.
Sometime soon I hope.

Maybe the type of "caregiver" you need is just someone to help with little things like cooking and driving. This would take the stress off of you. You need to stay healthy and getting some help will relieve some stress.
