Not sure what I'm looking for here... maybe to know I'm not the only one? I need to get over the resentment I feel for having to leave my job to care for my Dad. I'm still feeling angry at the passing of my Mom a little over a month ago. I promised her I'd care for my Dad who has mild dementia. After reading what many of you are going through, other than having to live in his house, leaving my career, away from my husband, the care isn't that difficult. (Paying bills, getting groceries, cleaning the house). However, his lack of logic, reasoning, common sense and need to talk non-stop is driving me crazy. He doesn't care what I have to say, and is very selfish. Because of that and the resentment of having to be here, I feel I'm not often very loving. (I call him out on ridiculous remarks). I do that mostly because he was critical of Mom as she was dying - - I'm trying not to feel the need to get him back for it, but dang it, if it doesn't happen in moments of frustration. I then of course, lose sleep from the guilt and vow to do better tomorrow. But then he does it again... and so do I.
