I gave up my home and friends etc. to move into the home of my elderly father, at his request, last January, after the tragic death of my Mother. I take care of him, along with a few Hospital Home Nurses, a few hours a week. I am his only Child in town. The rest of his children (Four others) live all over the country. When my father asked me to move in with him, I moved, with my sweet kitty cat, the very same day! That is what makes this question so painful and difficult for me. Almost from the start, my father has, consistently, treated me, inhumanely, constantly, demeaning me, hurling obscenities at me all day long, and, with an explosive temper, sadly, psychologically and verbally abusing me, in such a derogatory fashion, and with such ferocity, and consistency, that I fear I cannot repeat the words here! I don't know where this is coming from? and I don't care to analyze him. I want to protect myself!! at all costs. What will Adult Protective Services do if I report my dad's abuse? Can those with experience, perhaps, share their ideas with me, about this agency? I so appreciate any help! I am really in trouble in this scenario, I feel. Thanks to all.
