When did I become the parent and my dad become the kid?
Saturday, November 17, 2012
My dad is having a tough time with my mom gone, he's not eating correctly and he's a diabetic so it concerns me a lot! My nephew lives right upstairs with his wife and you'd think they'd make sure he eats SINCE HE PAYS FOR ALL THEIR BILLS ON A FIXED INCOME!
I was at Sam's with him and it was almost 6pm and he's telling me he didn't eat all day! I'm like dad you can't do that... he was so hungry he ate right there a hot dog they sold at cafeteria in Sam's...
I felt like the parent scolding him and he ate it quickly as if he was a child. My heart was just breaking cause I can't get over there often cause of the Fibro and the weather know is really making it act up. But there are two adults that live right there and don't do anything for him, my brother a block away and doesn't do anything!
I feel like I'm scolding him to eat good , like when I was a child I'd be scolded to eat good by him. He knows he can come to my house and someone will go help him (mostly my son, cause I'm usually down for the count) he has no one else to count on and I feel so bad.
I don't know what to make of things, he says my nephews wife has made the bed a few times since mom died and vacuumed a few times... big deal so did i but when we were at Sam's club he wanted to buy her a 900 minute phone card to call portugal... I said you do enough for them u pay all their bills!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and it's not like she does it everyday...
He thanks her and said to me oh she's like a second daughter , ya the same girl that was going to kick his and my moms butt out to the curb 2 weeks before she died!
Here I am hurting for money and he wants to help the two that both have jobs and he's already paying water, electric, cable and heat for , go figure??????????????
They don't even care if he has water or milk in the house, just so digusted!
