My husband is seriously ill, yet he continues to start up with Wizard … in my presence … which I have asked him specifically not to do. I don’t really want to side with Wizard, but WineGuy needs to respect my wishes.
As a caregiver, I’m not supposed to get angry with the patient. But when he deliberately starts up, just to drive home a point, what am I supposed to do? I just want to scream. Frankly, the best advice I’ve received on this topic is from a friend undergoing breast cancer treatment. She’s been more understanding and empathetic than my own husband.
Sometimes nothing makes sense.
