It seems to me that working 12 hours is too long as it is but since I really care for the mother I just can't say no if I'm needed at night (during my "off" time). She also uses me as a built in baby sitter for her 10 year old daughter, and a built in maid and cook. As I said, she's doing everything possible to make my life miserable, but I've earned that bonus that is left for me and have to stay to claim it. Everything the father and I agreed to she's changing. But, the hours are the hardest. I work a full month before I go home for four days (because of the distance from their home to mine) so, as you can imagine, the hours and the work she expects from me in cruel. Plus, with the stroke, the mother can go days without sleep and becomes agitated, combative, and very difficult to deal with. When she gets in the state the daughter will just leave me alone with her.
