To me, an emergency that requires me to drop whatever I am involved with, is getting my father to the toilet in my 2 min window.
Everything else, is non-emergency, and if I am cooking, cleaning, or just spending some time to myself...I should not be expected to do for him right NOW.
What is with NOW? What happened to being patient and waiting?
Since the stroke and his return home, if I receive a phone call, he will pick up the phone in his room and listen in....it really irritates me, because its none of his business, and I will literally have to go and take the phone from him. Why? Before the stroke, he never cared, and left me to my own during calls....
Dressing to go out....
Its such a maddening affair. He has what he wants in mind, but can't explain to me what it is....Tonight, I just laid out a pile of clothes on the bed, and I'm letting him mull it over.
