Re: Can't cope with the guilt trips & responsibility

Hi @VeeM and welcome to the forums 👋

 

@Corny  @LittleSister  there was a Topic Tuesday info sesh on the forums tonight to do with compassion fatigue and carer’s burnout.  I will tag y’all to it so you can take s look if you like.  @outlander  @Darcy , I know you are both aware of it anyway ....

Re: Can't cope with the guilt trips & responsibility

Thanks Corn Dog for your words. I read them twice. 

I had a blow up with C and made some demands (respect, manners etc) and surprise surprise, she rang me later and sounded totally sane and calm and cooperative. Let’s see how long it lasts. I think I just have to pull her up EVERY TIME she crosses the line. I hate being put in the authoritarian role. I resigned from that years ago. That was poor ol’ Dad’s job.
