It's not fair not getting paid. I should even though we have an aide helper that comes over, but I do most of the house work. We live in a small house so it's pretty easy. My dad is very very cheap thinking I would do everything. I had to watch mom while he had surgery last weekend our helper had to leave early before surgery him and his brother was living it up while I had to be stuck with mom. I say something I get yelled at. It was very stressful that weekend I should of gotten paid for the whole weekend not even a thank you it's all ways about him. (But last week I did go out shopping) How should I get paid cause I don't have a lot help? I have no help from friends or friends I do everything my self. Very limited going out and do things like I used to I just want to get paid. My dad doesn't realize I gave up a lot. I gave up my life I used to have a job, life friends. If you want to be a caregiver think twice it sucks the life right out of you you have no life cause it's all about them.
