Hi I am new to this site and my dad was diagnosed with dementia 6 months ago. Although he is in the early stages , the abuse, depression, rages, blaming, memory problems etc. are coming on strong and then some days he seems to function fine. I am the caregiver , a 58 single daughter with no support or caring from my sisters.I have no legal rights and i even get threats because I feel he should not be driving . I try to deal with the Dr`s , eye Dr, etc. about his driving , he had 4 accidents 2 of them his fault . I need a roof over my head and my sisters have threatened me if he loses his license they will know I am behind it. The insurance company has done nothing so far. I am detaching cause I have done everything I can and must try to have a life or I will become sick again. Does anyone ever have horrible feelings for the one they love and care for . Is that normal? Kontiki
