He is throwing out everything which will be easier for us to clean when he's gone, but he's obsessed with death and convinced he'll be dead by the the end of the year because all his brothers and father were dead by 84.
Dad also is obessed with money, money money. It's all he talks about, and death. How I'm not supposed to live long because I have no thyroid gland and the doctors said this and that.
I have not not been married long and I'm very happy in my marriage. I have an extremely caring and understanding husband. He said we may have to look after my father one day as in our home, I don't mind but I want him to leave all his negativity and misery behind. No one else is caring for him. My brother and sister are self absorbed and can't be bothered trying to understand my father's cognitive deterioration, which he is aware of anyway. He was always an extremely smart and academic man. I feel heartbroken for him.
I worked in Aged Care for 10 years and have seen elder deterioration. It's sad enough until your loved ones start to decline mentally
Poor Dad says to me that he knows that he is going downhill, even more since Mum died through a terrible fall down their back stairs and fractured her skull.
We are all missing her, but she and Dad were very close.
