Dear Kelly 71: I forgive you. It is close to that point though. I am about
ready to start exploring how I will finance their burials. My Dad's tumour continues to grow, my stepmom, showed slight improvement after being asleep for two weeks she actually ate a little something today. I will be arranging to take Dad to see her asap. dad doesn't really know her anymore, but he loves driving around the countryside looking for wildlife. I think the first sunny day, I'll set it up. Today was sunny, but I had a doctor's appt. and got a lecture. He said because I used about
six extra tablets to manage my muscle pain, through this ordeal, that I'm an addict. I said I have Fibromyalgia and was hit by a truck. He said "lot's of people with Fibro manage just fine w/o meds. So, we compromised. I told him as a fifty something woman with grown children and a son here with me that drives me wwhen I am in pain and need the meds, that I am not hurting anyone. Also, once this "family business"is settled, I will check into detox. No argument there. Dear Vestabula, I am so dismayed at the negative fallout from my sibs. We had a horrendous upbringing and as the eldest, I used to hide the younger ones and keep them busy playing games while the fighting and suicide attempts were taking place on a weekly basis. For whatever reason, they seem to think I am hoarding a goalmine from them. I feel guilty buying groceries. I will just do the best I can, save momentos and pictures for everyone and let the pieces fall where they will. I have a new family now, my friends and neighbors and my own two boys who have been there for me when I was stricken, sick and weak. I am beginning to come back to life now. I finished a course of super antibiotics and feel more alive. Also, I was in a major flare. I am slowly recovering and feel better each passing day. Thank-you all for your help and support.
