Dear Gemini: I am in a familar situation. I care for my 73 yr. old dad who has alzheimers, with absolutely no assistance from my brother or sister, sister actually came and took Dad away during the summer, against his will and mine. I'm his fulltime primary caregiver with Power of Attorney, so sis simply was informed by police, she would need my permission to take him anywhere. I am also BiPolar, BiPolar II, so I don't get the manic highs just anxiety, irritability, annoyance, creepy crawly skin and discomfort. I am usually prescribed anti-anxiety meds for this and it was working well along with a large dose of anti-depressant, everyday. I also have Fibromyalgia, for which I take pain meds. So, the similarities regarding our mutual situation are apparent. My Dad doesn't think of how I'm doing, he just wants to go wherever he wants to go, whenever. He says we argue a lot but it's usually because he wants me to go someplace with him (drive him) no matter how I feel. I find this so upsetting. OK, pardon my rambling but welcome to the forum and get rambling.
