Every year my girls get older and so do I, what I sometimes tend to forget is that my parents are also getting older. Last year and continuing this year my Dad has had some health problems. He is a stubborn man who pretty much refuses to see a doctor which scares my step-mom and myself.
I want my Daddy to be around to really watch all his grand kids grow up – he has 14 total! If we can’t convince him to go to the doctor (believe me, we’re trying) I was thinking of getting him a medical alert system or something so if something happens and no one is around he can get the help he needs.
Do you have a parent that has medical problems but refuses to see a doctor? What do you do?
I love my Daddy but damn, why does he have to be so stubborn? I run to the doctor for even the smallest things probably more often than I should so I don’t understand when someone doesn’t want to see a doctor to find out what is causing so many health issues.
