I'm working on having my father's FTD diagnosed. My family didn't want to invite me to my aunt's 60th birthday party because they don't want my father there. They are afraid he will give them a disease. He is filthy and smelly but he's not contagious. He doesn't want to go anywhere anyway but isn't it rude to deliberately tell a family member they are not allowed to go to a major family event? Now, I feel like I'm being ostracized because I'm associated with him. Aside from continuing to work on getting him help, how do I get my family not to disassociate with me?
