A bloated Xmas? Grr.

Sunday, December 23, 2012

I have officially given up on December workouts, sadly
Friday I woke up with severe ab pain which I have now figured is another case of Diverticulitis (too late to catch my Dr open for Xmas of course, luckily had some Cipro and pain meds left over from last time). Haven't been able to eat solids but also haven't been able to workout, since I can barely stand straight up due to gut pain. Ouch. I could NOT Have been the 4 quarts of pomegrantie seeds and popcorn last week could it????? DuH. But I love pomegranites sooooooooooooooooooooo much!!

Got my oldest sister on a plane last Wednesday, took my injured sister to her Dr's appt and shielded from nasty attitude in regards to not wanting her drive/smoke....did my best to listen to her intense painful lamenting and stopped at the accident site where she lost her S.O. last month. Really horrible situ and I just don't know how to help. The best can do is try to keep her from destroying her life further but she seems hellbent on it.

Since being laid up, have learned my injured sis has opened her door to a very questionable sort of 'friend', who-frankly- has a criminal past, a drug problem and is homeless with no car at the moment. Sister said, "She is the ONLY person who has called me every single day since N died and offered to do anything she could, etc. " Sis has always been obtuse about seeing through peoples intentions. We've all constantly urged her to stay clear of this person since Sis used to pay her to houseclean and suspected her of stealing. This story is headed for a sad ending all the way around, I fear. But I am in self survival mode, esp since I can't 'get through' to Sis about making good decisions and she is , after all, an adult. The situation is so volatile however and could go so terribly wrong in so many ways. All one can do is pray for a peaceful resolution.

I am annoyed at myself for making myself physically ill through diet to the point I can't get my frustrations/stress out with exercise. I feel like I am morphing into a blob. ON the other hand....LES MIS comes out at 10pm tomrrow!!!!!! I am aching to see that movie but no 'mom sitter' to take over duty. (She can't sit through a movie and certainly couldnt' enjoy that one with her deaf issue and no ear for accents...plus having to pee constantly...lol) Oh well, it will all work out. HEY, we are all still here and 12=21-12 blew right on by us, huh?

    I don't know how I missed this blog...I would suspect that your sister's so called "friend" is looking for drugs first, and the possibility of a money settlement later on from the SO estate.She probably is calling every day to check on the future money situation, and to worm her way back into your sister's life. Your sister is an adult, however, she is not in any right state of mind to see the writing on the wall... I would run a check on this person. I would be watching every move she makes. I would count your sister's pills. I would inform her doctor and every one else who would listen about the situation. I would let the so called friend know that I am on her arse and that I will do what ever I need to do to protect my sister. You might not be able to stop this piece of garbage from using your sister, but you can make it more difficult for her. Hopefully, your sister will recover enough to notice that this person means her no good. There is of course the slim possibility that this person is reformed, but odds of winning the lottery are higher. I've been in your place and I did everything I could and still the person moved in with the guy who had no job and had just gotten out of prison...like 20 year prison term...yeah, I didn't even want to ask "what for".I stayed on him..I let him know that I didn't like him and I would call his parole officer at the slightest indiscretion..she would call and complain that he was drinking and running around on her, really? What is it that you see in him, tell me?.....she bought him a car and he took off. It took her two years to track down the car that she bought him. It's not considered stolen if you gave them permission to drive it. It was a nightmare. emoticon I hope your sister can wise up.
