He gets overwhelmed with our family (very large) and no one wants to be around him anymore. My dad is still working as a professional and is very successfull in his business. He refuses to slow down and is constantly working. The holidays at my parents are becoming something my siblings and I dread. He is becoming very crotchety and not very nice as he gets older, and we just dont know what to do about it anymore. It is to the point where a few of my siblings refuse to go over there house. He is very thick headed so whatever we say, he takes it personally and tells us all we dont know what we are talking about. He is wonderful in small groups of us, by any more then 6 or 8 people he cant handle it. He makes my mother feel terrible about it, and he threw us all out on Easter because it was too overwhelming for him. We thought at first maybe he is starting with dimentia, but since looking up the symptoms we dont think he has that.......yet anyway. Any comments or suggestions welcome! THank you!
