Pegi Posted July 24, 2017 Share Posted July 24, 2017 How do you deal with family members whom you normally only see a few times a year who now decide they need to make multiple visits???? Short of telling them all where to go. We have tried to set boundaries & time frames. We have a schedule we are on and they get very offended when I tell them NO and turn around and call my husband who wants everyone to get along. He is afraid to hurt someone's feelings. I on the other hand could care less. These people are not left with the aftermath of their visits. I get left with the totally wiped out shell of the person who is sick. It would be nice if they would offer help or bring a meal or offer to run an errand. Instead they come in plop down dissect our life and need to know everything and cruise back out the door only to reappear a few days later. I am just pissed off, frustrated and want to smack some of them. It is like they have no common sense. A good example is our Sunday morning trip to ER @ 5:30 a.m.where we stayed till 10:30 a.m.. Planned visitors called ahead and when I said we just got back from ER they said we will be there in a half hour for a visit. Meanwhile I still had to feed him and get him settled back in. Common sense would have had me saying I will pass on the visit. DDOT 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
