Hi all, new here and hoping for some insight. My father suffered a debilitating stroke and cannot live on his own. The situation itself is very stressful, he was working full-time at a physical job and is relatively young (early 60s), his wife left him because she couldn't deal with it and my sibling says that she has a life elsewhere and can't come visit. So...
My marriage is suffering horribly. My husband basically wants me to move in to my dad's home and stay there (rather than have him in our home). We have children at home (the youngest is 12) and honestly, I just want to be home, you know? I feel like I've been kicked out. I thought we had a good marriage, and this whole thing with him really surprised me, and is kinda making me hate him.
I'm not sure what the point of my post is, needed to vent anonymously, and maybe hear some words of wisdom from others who have (successfully or unsuccessfully) cared with ailing parents and a less than sympathetic spouse.
