I want to scream

He is annoying me to death I swear we went over the same thing 20 times and he keeps yelling at me because he said that I keep saying something different well guess what he is wrong I said the exact same thing all 20 times. He wants to take more medicine than he should because he thinks that it will help faster and when we say no well he does it anyway. I am scared that he is going to overdose on something because he will keep talking the pills and won't listen. I have tried everything to remain calm but I just want to leave and never come back and everyone can just forget me. I had a good day until I came home I hate coming home now because he is always here and he just talks non stop about everything and then gets mad when we don't talk back. He is wrong most of the time and thinks that we are stupid and we are useless and wants us to go away well I wish that I could. I don't have a choice anymore everything is about him him him. I am so sick of all the yelling and complaining and everything that he does. At this point I am at my last straw and I can't find anymore patience. If I leave I am a bad daughter if I stay I am going to go crazy and there is no third option because he gets mad when I go somewhere other than school or work. I don't care what he wants anymore I want peace and quiet and I want it now! Sorry if this offended anyone I am just venting. I hate the things that are happening in my life right now.

You hate it just as all caregivers on here hate it. We hate the demands on our time, the complaints of the one we care for, the wanting something just as you are sitting down etc.

 

Slowly you need make time for yourself, ten minutes to stand out in the sun, so step out and breath deep. Then later you need a coffee (tea) break so make a cup and sit down. "Not now, I am having my break". Nurses do it, you do it. Then jump up and say: "Okay, what is it you wanted?" If your Dad screams and yells sit still. You will need to do that when you have children so you are just learning early.

 

Caregivers have some rights as does the person you are caring for. The learning curve is about getting that balance.

Thanks that made me feel a lot better. I am trying to take breaks when it gets to be too much so I don't do something that I will regret. I am glad to know that others feel this way too. Thank you for your comment you have made my day so much better. I am not alone.
