As some of you know my dad has lived with me going on 6 mos now. It was only to be for few months. He is a master manipulator. My ability to handle the stress of practically being a live in nurse/maid/butler is nearing a serious boiling point. I’ve had a few explosions verbally at him, which i know are not good, but he’s such a hard head they don’t affect him. He is so selfish. When I try to explain the stress I’m under all I hear is a laugh. Nothing will get through his head. He is fairly disabled and for instance today I had a dentist appointment clear in another town and just wanted to put out a snack for him for the day which is never good enough for him.
He expects something grandiose all the time. Can’t just settle that we don’t have the finances to splurge all the time and get what his cry baby self desires. Recently we went so I could fill a written statement out that he has home healthcare to appease a potential housing complex. Please pray they take him or I find something soon. Right now I am at work and hardly able to function because of the stress, almost froze but have to push on because it’s my job. It seriously feels like I’m at home dealing with the same stuff that made me want to move.
Please pray that the Lord would touch him physically and mentally and all of that. And restore peace to me.
He very much confesses Christ and prays often and reads his Bible. He can be very generous and nice, but when something doesn’t go his way or get what he thinks he needs it can get ugly. He even tries and tells the nurses how to do their jobs. It’s l like a dr. Jeckel/Mr. Hyde thing. His stubbornness has in part caused the situation he has found himself in. There is a back story of how he was raised but he has let it affect his adulthood seriously too much. Just a difficult situation to say the least.
Sorry to be so dramatic but it can be that bad at times. Now he’s trying to play the “I’d rather live with you card” and woa is me. I do love my dad but arggghh!! Have to get back with the apartment complex in a few weeks, but at least the application was approved. Things will be much better between us when he gets out as it was before this all happened last year. Thanks for your prayer guys/gals!
