So Sorry to hear of the termoil in your life. You and I have alot in common when it comes to the actions/reactions to our sick patients. I never in a million years thought it would be so hard to take care of someone you loved. I feel like a prisioner in my own life. I hope you get the relief you need to be beneficial to yourself, and your other family.
Trish & Connie,
Yes, the thought is in the back of my head to leave. But the caring part of me says...where will he go, what will he do. He has no family or friends. (this should have been a huge clue) The one friend he has stopped calling or coming around, he can't stand to hear Lee talk about all the doom and gloom and doesn't like what he see's of the illness. Lee keeps telling me that if I leave "what a horrible person you would be to leave a dying man". Get this...the doc called in another kind of pain med for him yesterday, the insurance co denied it, they said it was because it was perscribed for cancer patients. So, now I have to fight to get that straight, but in the mean time Lee made it so horrible for me that I had to go pick up this script and pay for it out of my pocket. $399.00. In my head I know that is just inabling him, but again the caring side said, he is in pain. I'm so torn.
