I had a bad feeling for a couple of days. My son and his girlfriend (who both live with us) were on edge and high energy (not a good combination). They started deep cleaning the house and rearranging all our stuff. We were nice about it, but they were angry that we weren't "grateful."
I had a one-on-one talk with my son on Friday and I thought we had reached some resolution. We strongly disagree with each other, but at least we were talking and listening. Also I thought they would realize that we are their last resort. They live with us rent-free on the agreement that they are saving to move out.
Yesterday, everything fell apart. They got upset that we had moved some of our things back to where we could find them. I explained that it was more convenient. They started yelling and stomped away to son's bedroom. Hubby went outside to mow the lawn.
A bit later, son came out of his room and told me I was crazy and needed psychiatric help. His girlfriend came out and said I was not crazy, just brainwashed by hubby and they should feel sorry for me. Son got in his truck and left. Girlfriend started badgering me that I needed to divorce my husband because he is ruining their lives (not sure how as there is almost no interaction between them and he is always fixing things for them, giving them money, etc.)
I told her I had no intention of choosing my adult children over my husband (never raised my voice). She started screaming at me. I asked her to leave.
She continued screaming. Hubby could hear it from outside, so he came in to make sure everything was okay. He was standing at least ten feet away from us and calmly told her to leave. She flew at him in a rage and started punching and hitting him. I called 911 and we had to have the police and paramedics come. Hubby was bleeding from multiples cuts to his face and the top of his head.
Girlfriend had jumped out of son's bedroom window and had him pick her up down the street. Cops found them and she is now in jail. Son is home and freaking out because she could be charged with a felony. He wants husband to drop charges. This not our first issue with her. I don't want to ruin her life, but she made the choice to attack my husband. Anyway, at the very least, she will never set foot in my house again. Son is getting two weeks notice to find someplace else to live as well, unless his attitude changes drastically, which I doubt.
Food-wise, I was good. I was so scared and stressed out that I just ate a normal dinner and nothing else. I am hoping I can keep that resolve today as I can swing one way or the other when I am stressed. I either don't eat or comfort eat, depending on how nauseous I am.
As always, thank you for listening. Spark is the only place where I have no family members and very few close friends IRL, so I can talk about what 's really going on and not have to worry about gossip.
I love you guys!!
