My husband & his two brothers had not seen their father in 34 years. About a year ago they reunited with him. We moved his father to FL from NJ to be closer to us. Last week one of my husbands brother moved here with his two girls so he too could get to know his father.
My father in law has leukemia but refuses treatment because he believes the chemo will give him a heart attack. So they want to spend as much time with him as possible.
He kept saying how lonely he was because my husband works a lot of hours. So I found several senior activities for him. Took him shopping. Took him to dr appts. Now we found out he is involved with a woman that is not after his best interest (much younger & short on cash always asking for money). He said he wants nothing to do with his sons because she doesn't like them.
I had been going to the gym everyday to get off all meds (have been diabetic for many years. I started losing weight and inches. Now I am spending all my time trying to put the family back together. They are making great strides but I have begun to stress eat. Sweets, sweets & more sweets. Then I sit down and cry because I think I am a failure.
I don't go to the gym as much because I am always putting out family fires.
I guess I am asking for the support I crave but am not getting from home.
