Dad was too drugged up...he was shuffle walking...had some obvious issues dealing with information...processing it...but I think the drugs he is on are not working to help one bit with his problem and they are causing him to sleep 15 hours a day easy...

It's hard to just cannot beat can fight it but you can't beat it..

I still picture your dad looking like he did in 1975 or so.
I suppose you like like that now, in reality.
What's his main health issue?

Sometime spring he began to just slow down...thinking, moving, etc. He used to tell stories about the good ole days in the Warren/Altus farm community and he mostly stopped doing that. They are giving him early dementia type medicine but it has not perked him up mentally and he sleeps ALL the time now...

I saw a picture of you and Phoebe and I think it was the best shot of your face I've seen since Attackpoint look young and old at the same time...I feel that way about myself..I look 60 years old but a young 60 years old...although Chrissy says I look like an old 60 yr old.

She is eating me alive...flaying me to the bone now...I'm just glad James got out...proud of him.

Well, maybe become proud of yourself and get out too. No one needs to live in an abusive relationship.

You sound like Chrissy talking to me...she tells me I'm abusive...constantly...ironically that is part of the verbal abuse beside whatever she is yelling about goes on for so long...hours...but to be told you are an abuser over and over...I've said and done things not proud of during our fights but she paints me as some brute that beats on her almost daily and curses her for no reason (I do curse her...with everything I have...but...and there really should no but...but...there is...I get fed up and let'er rip) was not fair to James. I should have moved out with him...the thing was she always painted this picture of her and James were suffering and you could not tell her that James did not feel the way she did...pretty much quit pitying her a long time ago...the nice Chrissy is still buried inside but the monster pretty well dominates her life 95% of the's hard to believe you can end up in life in a situation like this...I'm not some pathetic victim...just worn out from her...and disappointed how poorly I've handled things...and that is the truth...I handled this poorly...not the absolute worst but not one of the proud accomplishments of my life either...thanks..
