I need to talk emotions! When you are taking care of someone with kidney disease or (maybe it is just Kat) you may have to reign in your emotions in order not to lose sanity! What I mean is Kat has been stressed out because I want to visit my father just after Thanksgiving next week. In the past she tolerated him but now she literally was getting sick with depression and her blood pressure stayed up for 3 days in a row just at the thought of even going to dinner with my father. I understand that my father can be very difficult (the guilt, debating attitude, and his unconscious put-downs) but taken in small doses I can control my emotional feelings - after all he is my father (unconditional love). However, I think Kat’s mental state from her kidney disease has overly exaggerated the situation to the point that I had to cancel a simple two-hour dinner (which was a compromise – an effort on my part to balance EVERYONE’s feelings) . Listen, I am angry about it but then again released from another tough decision, Kat’s ridiculous concerns, and of having to suffer my father’s slings and arrows. Still is it worth the sacrifice of my emotions! Remember me the hero! I feel like I am in a circus where I just want to juggle but instead I am mistaken for being a human target! Oh, well, I’ll duck this one, quack!
