It’s natural that you would be stressed out about
your dad, after all the ER visits following his surgery and the minor heart attack as well. Health issues can be really scary, especially when it concerns someone we love. Is there anyone else who can help to care for him when your sister goes back home? That is a lot to handle, when you are working and need to manage the apartment complex on top of it. I have cared for several family members over the years, and it does become stressful and exhausting. I hope you have other support to rely on.
As far as work goes, it can be really tough when you have a close relationship with your boss. It sounds like the boundaries have been crossed between work and personal, and your boss is butting into your life a little too much, in an inappropriate way. It’s hard to go back once the line has been crossed, but honestly, if your boss is upsetting you this much, and getting too personal with telling you how you are feeling and whether or not you should be driving, you may have to politely suggest that you don’t feel comfortable with those comments. Perhaps with the stress of looking after your dad and trying to juggle everything, you should take a step back from socializing with your boss so much. That is just my opinion, and I say this out of concern for you. You have a lot on your plate.
You mentioned seeing your pdoc….is that just for meds, or do you get counseling as well? If not, I think it might help to have that additional support. Please keep posting with us and let us know how it’s going. Take care of yourself, and best wishes for your dad’s condition. (((hugs)))
