Dad has been in a home for about 4 months .when I first visited I would cry a lot . Than dad started going down hill and I would cry driving in , then at the home and then I would get in the car after and be shattered.
I would get upset for the other patients as well.
Dad is in his own world a lot of the time now , so I chat to the others and help them and just like to be with dad and give him love . I go in every 2 nd day .
So I am 50 and menopausal ...the doctor put me on antidepressant as I was not coping . Now I accept dad and feel calm , but no emotional outbreaks .
What I am asking is , do we go through a grieving process as we watch our loved ones decline and then we have acceptance and become stronger
Or has the zoloft just turned me into a zombie ?
Thanks for any advice
