Help! How do I manage major manipulation? Mom and I couldn’t My Dad just finished a major anxiety attack and tried to manipulate me. I am exhausted. We have gone out every day literally, but after going to church and eating breakfast at his favorite restaurant he still wanted to go out. No nap…watched a movie with Mom and then it started. I was resting peacefully and Mom’s caregiver is here. He wanted to go out! How do I get a round trip uber just to get him out? Is there a service I can hire? He knows I’m going home for my anniversary and this is a major source of his anxiety. He did this a few days before I went home for my birthday and I took him to the doctor. RN said it was a family matter and no he wasn’t having a heart attack…no he wasn’t going to die.
