Why can't he just leave things where they are?!?

Tom is constantly rearranging everything on his side of the table, taking things (meds) off my side of the table, taking things out of the trays at his side where they are organized and putting them on the table or taking them off the table and putting them there.

And then he can't figure out why he can't find something he needs...and since I'm female and evidently have a built-in homing device or something in my uterus, I have to find it. When he COULD have just left it alone and it would have been where it belonged.

No. He's not putting things in a "better" place -- because it's never the same place twice.

I do NOT have the patience for this right now. I used to have patience, but I used it and my reserves up this past week and a half. I don't know if I put any away for safe keeping.

Can I duct tape his hands together, too?

This is why caregivers kill themselves... (no, don't worry about that).
