Is anybody else in this boat? My dad is in his mid sixties but I am starting to find him so, so difficult. He repeats himself constantly, tells around half an hour to recount a story that would have taken about twenty words, but it's the constant fussing that is really driving me bananas. If I say anything just casually it can either relate to a noise that indicates he heard me (thus stopping any further conversation) or just firing questions at me - "when are you going, who with, how are you getting there" on and on and on! And I inevitably end up telling him again, and again and again. I'm just finding it hard to keep my patience with him and not snap, I seem to get irritable around him a lot which leads to lots of wounded looks and him repeating what he said in a long suffering tone preceded by "Well I was ONLY saying that ..." We used to get on so well when I was younger and it just seems sad but I find him so infuriating lately and I can't even fully express why.
