A fine serving of hysteria for breakfast.

It’s been a terrible day. It started with an email from the DMV reminding me of the appointment I made to take Mother to get her real ID next week. The real ID is going to become a requirement for national travel here in the US. A regular driver’s license won’t cut it anymore, butContinue reading “A fine serving of hysteria for breakfast.”

Meg feels entitled!

Oh my God, that was hell! Hell! Fire and brimstones would’ve been preferable to this agonizing torment. Today was dedicated to helping my mom. I set my alarm clock for sometime after 9:00 AM, and after I woke up, I did all the morning stuff: walked the dog, ate oatmeal, took my meds. Then IContinue reading “Meg feels entitled!”

And now I’m angry.

I just now emailed my mom. Please quit asking me questions about the past. If you feel guilty for being a bad parent, that shouldn’t be my problem, and I’ll never tell you what you want to hear (that you weren’t an abusive parent), so quit harassing me about it. I can’t help you withContinue reading “And now I’m angry.”

A delightful talk with Mother.

So, I called my mom on the phone today. Hilarity ensued. First, I told her of my fun upcoming weekend alone. (My dad will be out of town.) She said, “You’d probably know who to call if you had plumbing issues, right? I mean, you’ve never been home alone before, have you?” “Okay,” I replied.Continue reading “A delightful talk with Mother.”

Can’t ever keep from falling apart…

Last night was dreadful. I’d spent the day exercising and eating canned foods. Late at night while I was in the bathroom, I heard someone acting hysterical on the other end of my dad’s landline phone. (He uses the speakerphone due to his near-total deafness.) I had a bad feeling when I exited the bathroom.Continue reading “Can’t ever keep from falling apart…”

Trading in secrets.

Dear Amy: My adult sons are so estranged from my ex-husband that neither invited him to their weddings. While I still have difficult feelings toward my ex, I try to have some level of civil interaction with him. He often asks for updates as to what our sons are up to and how they areContinue reading “Trading in secrets.”

False advertisement!

The websites make it sound so harmless! Side effects may be mild and will only last a few days. Symptoms include [insert a long list of scary symptoms here], but don’t fret! Many people have no side effects, and it’s different for everyone.  I feel like death. I felt ill yesterday after getting Pfizer #2,Continue reading “False advertisement!”

Lured to the dark side.

So, I thought I was close to my paternal aunt, Aunt Judy, but… a few things have gone wrong lately. A while back, she asked if I’ve managed to reconcile with my sister yet. The question rubbed me the wrong way because my sister is violent and has some dark-triad traits. She’s assaulted me sixContinue reading “Lured to the dark side.”
