My state of mind is not yours to define!

There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

Posted:I'd make a little rant about socialized medicine, but that won't help your dad any so I won't.



my mother is in similar shape from different stuff, and not because of dovtor's screwing up (she is certainly better off for their excellent help in fact, and would probably be dead without them). What is different is that my mother will never get better, and all that can be done is to make her life longer and higher quality.



I don't have any advice for you. All I can say is I know it is rough for you, espcially since it seems like there are so few ways you can help your father. But being supportive and positive towards him is more important than anything else. A positive enviroment not only makes people get better faster, it makes them want to get better faster.



Give him your strength and then go to your friends or here when you are down and need to recharge. And don't feel guilty about taking time for yourself even if you think he needs you all the time, because you will be a much more positive influence if you are not constantly worn down by it all.

What is psychology?- Looking for a black cat in a dark room. What is psychoanalysis? Psychoanalysis is looking for a black cat in a dark room -- in which there is no cat -- but finding one anyway.

Posted:Rough times ahead. You have your Dad, make the most of it. Doctors need to know extraordinary amounts of stuff and see huge numbers of people and are also human. Stuff gets done wrong and its horrid when its you its happened to.

Have a think on what Vanize has said and make the time you have the best for you both. Its got to help recovery of him and you as well.

Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
