    Oh , Char, let it out dear, you and me know how much it helps to talk about it to everyone. It is a shame janice does not realize how much you do for her, and where she would be with out YOU.

Hang in there my dear friend, I am here for you. anytime. or if you want to talk , my number is 740-474-6875 .

You are better then this, you just have to keep telling yourself that and no matter what she says or yells, you are the better person and she really does not know what she is talking about.

keep you chin up friend and we will all be there to help ,
love ya

I know you have been taking care of Janice for a long time. Although I don't comment often I have read a little of your history. You, my friend, have taken on a lot of responsibility and working two jobs has to be draining. We took care of my mother-in-law for 18 months(she was a jewel by the way)but it was difficult at times. I don't know all of Janice's limitations. Mentally is she okay? Is it only physical? If it is mental we have to overlook some things. Physical we need to have some understanding. Most of all stepping back and evaluating where she is coming from. Can you change it? While I know finacially you are feeling trapped (been there myself) but consider all you options. I've heard too many people in our area try to get someone to care for a parent and are unable to find someone to do so. If she is getting too difficult to handle there is the possibility someone else out there has a need you would be able to fulfill without the added aggravation. I know she is like family to you but I also know letting someone drain you of your health both mentally and physically isn't the answer. We eventually had to make that decision with my mother-in-law. It broke my heart that she had to go to a nursing home. Possibly this is exactly what needs to happen to help clear the air so she knows the needless difficulty she is imposing on you. Tears can be very healing.

Incidentally my hat is off to you and your cleaning. What a great way to work off those frustrations ........burn calories..........and have a clean home to boot.

YOU ARE AWESOME! Saying a prayer for you and Janice.

Marie

    Oh Char close your eyes, take a deep breath and feel my hugs girlfriend!! Lots and lots of them just as if we were together crying on each other's shoulders. Sometimes life just sucks and as Chelsea would tell me or you, sometimes life's a beach with NO water, deal with it!! Yep raised a smart kid there didn't I? But sometimes stepping back looking at the grand picture sure helps put it all in a different light. You know that some things you can change and some you can't again it's that wisdom to know the difference. I think we find nasty people everywhere, they are just a part of life unfortunately. I am learning more and more to kill them with kindness they don't know how to react to that one, they continually push buttons to see if you react when you don't it leaves them defenseless. Janice needs you and I am sure loves you dearly for all you do for her, I can't imagine being Janice or in her shoes and I am sure she strikes out at the one closest to her because of that and you get the brunt of it all poor dear. But you know doing for her gives you something you can't nor won't get from doing anything else and reminding her from time to time to be nice is about allyou can do when she's striking out.You did exactly what you need to do, come here let it out, vent those feelings and get them off your chest onto the plate and then go on again til it happens again and again do the same thing. Tears a are good form of cleansing and we all need to do it more often more freely I think, I have noticed when you are tired it's alot easier to bring them up as well. And sometimes you just need to walk away to a quiet place for a few minutes and let yourself explode to release some of that pent up anger. Easy for me to say right? I so admire what you do for Janice, I know that you need the job but I know you also do it because you care about her and think of what her life would be like without you! I pray today is a better day for you dear friend. Lots of extra hugs for you Love Cheryl emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sorry things aren't going well at work either. Glad you come and vent to us. Hopefully by venting you will be able to stay away from the eating. You don't deserve to be treated the way you are being treated. Maybe Walmart is looking better. LOL Love ya girl, take care, Jane

    emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon now here is some kleenex and you need to blow your nose, wash your face and now that you have let off some steam, talk with Roy, and see if you can find ANOTHER person to care for who would appreciate your goodness. The problem with Janice is she thinks she is family now and wants to be treated like one yet be mean. What ever her problem, you did right by letting her sister know, my goodness, she's a grown woman and needs councelling. Anyway.

I am sure that you could find another person to care for and not have all the greif and keep it at a business level and not bring it home like you have with Janice. Let Janice have someone else. It is time, my friend.

Perhaps you can sit down with Roy and look at your budget and see what is up with that. You already work a job you don't like. I suggest you try and find some positives to help you with that job rather then be miserable all the time. If I could find my book that is quoted on my spark page I would send that to you. But do try and find positives to help you with your first job.

You have excellent qualities and if you go back to Janice, DEMAND A RAISE... to have to put up with that nonsence ...well... I am glad you turn to us, we care about you and for you, but in the end, you and Roy will have to deside...maybe time to draw up new Janice Rules... and have Janice and her sister BOTH sign it and then if they refuse they can go find someone else. When someone knows how much you need the money they tend to take advantage of that..so now my friend, KNOW your value and ask for no more then that...my goodness I've rambled on...have you washed your face??? Love ya ..... emoticon
