I’m learning how to deal with a difficult parent, my dad. I was feeling anxious and nervous. I’ve learned I need another person in the same room with us otherwise it’s my word vs his. Since I started that a few weeks ago I’ve been better. He has a Dr appointment in a couple of weeks for a general assessment since he “graduated” from palliative care. I’m trying to figure out why he’s so combative with my brother and I. I care for Mom & Dad and my brother helps. We also have caregivers (5 hours in the morning for Dad and 4 hours in the afternoon for Mom). I can’t watch and care for both at the same time. I tried and ended up with sciatic pain, sore muscles general anxiety. I wish I was a witty person then I might be able to diffuse the situation. Any one else find something that works?
