I am dealing with a family issue today. My dad is bipolar (but won't admit it) and he gets extremely nasty with my mom. When she was at work, someone must have hit the door with their car. My dad was furious. She says that he was screaming at her and belittling her. She said she thought he was going to kill her. I'm in Florida, but my whole family is in NY, so it makes me feel helpless. I've been trying to call her but she won't answer. She will sporadically text me short answers.... I even got my grandma (her MIL) involved, and my dad told her my mom was "unable to talk" and he doesn't want to discuss what's going on with her or anyone else. She told me she wishes she had somewhere to go. I told her grandma would take her in, but I get to response. I wish I knew what to do. I worry about my mom. She is so unhappy with my dad.
All this totally took away my motivation to work out tonight. I had planned on doing Zumba all day, but I can't seem to drag myself there at this point. I'm disappointed in myself, and feel like I'm using this whole situation as a scapegoat.
