Sam, Seems your SIL needs to retake the compassion class.
Too bad we couldn't wave the wand and wish diarrhea and don't forget the white-knuckle poos....maybe a few pant crappers just before sitting on the toilet. That could set her in the right direction.
Definitely you're already into the reality thinking phase...which is a good thing. We all have the potential for it to happen, even your SIL, for cancer or other probems can result in having one's colon removed.
In her defense of thinking, not of her actions, however....it could be a cumulative effect of what she sees, It could be that it wasn't totally directed at you but fear for herself.
