I have had so much difficulty communicating with my dad trying to get him all the care he needs, but he doesn't want to use up his money. He lives with my mom and their rent at their assisted living is over $7,000 per month.
For months I was getting myself physically ill and became so agitated and anxious all the time.
I have learned that for my own health and well being, I can only do so much to help my parents. For my own sanity, I am beginning to be a litle selfish, taking time for myself to enjoy life.
He will turn 90 on June 25, 2007, and I will be throwing a small birthday party for him where he lives. We will show some old slides of my parents' past trips and that will make both of them so happy.
