I can so relate to your story about your Dad and the belt. It is so hard to watch them struggle with the everyday tasks. Your caring for your Dad is such a blessing for him. Your support here is invaluable. Thank you so much for your responses.
I wish I could have more faith that my siblings will someday realize their part in the family dysfunction. But, I am not so sure that they will acknowledge it. My mother is actually the "architect"! Meanwhile I will pray for grace and understanding...
