Mom barely moves around anymore, not even to slip on her own slippers. Wrapped up in multiple blankets, she's still cold, even with Spring here and the weather heating up. If she can't stay warm, she gets my Dad to crank up the gas fireplace. Problem is, I get overly hot very quickly. I live with them, and do my best to keep up with the housework. I have to be in the same room to babysit, otherwise my father comes searching for me. But I can't take this jacked up thermostat. I can't breathe, am dehydrated, and get chronic headaches from it all. When Mom occassionally moves around, she feels better and everything about her functions better and feels warmer. But she's well on her way to becoming an invalid slug. I love her, and feel bad calling her names. Please know I'm just venting. But I can't continue to do my caregiving job in an overheated house. Where do her rights end and mine begin?
