Hi, I am new to this forum and was just looking for a little advice to a physical outburst by my father. A little background info, my dad was diagnosed in Feb last year, but recently suffered a mini stroke some 3 month ago. I'm looking for a bit advice about an incident that happened a few days ago. My father pushed and held his hands around my throat after I explained that he wasn't allowed to do something. I explained the reasons why, in a calm manner, but he wasn't happy with what I was saying and this resulted in him physical attacking me. While he apologised an hour later, I am left feeling very confused with my emotions. Firstly, I understand the effects that the disease can have on a person's behavior..and I understand it wasnt really him. Secondly, I'm struggling with the fact that he actually attacked me in the manner that he did. I've got so many conflicting emotions and I don't know what to do for the best. Any advice or has anyone been in a similar situation?
