Pushed into the corner.

It can only get better, right? I don't feel very Christmasy. My mom's husband - I can't call him step-dad right now - hurt himself. He is on major pain meds and can't take care of mom right now. He is being extremely stubborn and doesn't want to pay for care. I threatened to get a lawyer if he didn't get care in the house. I had to do it. My mom can't be alone. I told them I would move in, but he said "NO". I am so worried about my mom. She hasn't been taking her meds because he is not checking to be sure she does. He knows she won't remember but he won't face facts. I am an emotional wreck. When I called this morning mom sounded really upset. She is usually so compliant and doesn't have much in the way of a negative mood.
