Things are a mess. Dad has turned his sorrow into anger, directed at my sister Wanda who almost single handedly took care of Mom before going to the nursing home. I want to find a hole to crawl into. Life just gets worse and worse!

Take some time to catch your breath, this time will pass. All of us respond to pain differently, I hope and pray your family finds peace.

Condolences on your Mother's passing, her spirit is in a better place and her pain is no more. Hard to say good bye , for most of us our parents raise , nurture, teach and give us the foundation of our principles that will serve us as we embarked on our lives and start our own families, then it's our turn with our children to do the same. Often we will be called upon by our love for our parents to take on the caregiver role as they enter the winter of their lives, it's not any easy thing to do, almost role reversal from how we started together, usually all those years ago. IT IS physically and emotionally trying, can measure the limits of one's patience and perseverance. We offer compassion in words, sincere and heartfelt to you , but it's you that have been given the responsibility to show the compassion your father needs now, dutiful and loving son that you are you will find the resolve to see him thru , stay strong ,listen to your heart when your emotions want to take over, patience with your father will be the last best gift you can give him. Peace be with you.

That anger switch was a short-time thing in our family, I hope and pray it is for your family too.

Daniel, so sorry to hear this news! I know the feelings of loss well and I know you will be strong. But give yourself some time to grieve, even if you have to do it alone. Teresa will be right there when you need her. Prayers for all of you in your time of sorrow!
