I'm sure everyone is sick of hearing about my grandma drama... I am too.. but it's back. Last week she was pretty depressive but was okay, I was over there and she was being nice to me. I went home which is next door, a few hours later I called over there and no answer. I then walked over there and all the doors were locked, no lights, etc. I came back home and called again. I than got the house keys, she had the latches locked (which she never does) given her history, I wasn't going to let this go, so I looked in the window as I dialed her house again, and I saw my grandmother wide awake, looking at the caller id, then laying the phone back down.. this made me confused. I than left a message on her answering machine telling her that I could see her etc... long story short I threatened to call the police if she didn't answer the phone to let me know she was NOT suicidal. Now yesterday I drove her to see her psychologist...the entire ride up there I got to hear how she loved me so much, and how she is so "neglected and mistreated" by MY MOTHER.. that is a lie, and it hurts. I told her not to talk to me about that.. that I love my mom. Than on the ride home I got to hear about how my mom is not there for her etc... I was crying, and she just said "you're my doll" I wanted to scream!!!! She was clearly enjoying this. My mom does not neglect her, she just has healthy boundries unlike me because I'm scared of her. The boundries that my mom has aren't even what a typical person would call healthy, she's just not as scared of grandma as I am..she's still scared, and gets hurt alot.

Today grandma calls because she thinks she's having blood pressure problems. This turned into an all day event. I was there from 10am until 3pm... than I left!!! I had an appt so I left early with Kailey. When I came home the phone rang.. It was grandma, she just said "come over" and hung up.. My mom was picking up prescriptions for her at Kmart at the same time so I had to go over... Chris was home and watched Kailey. She was coughing, and trying to throw up.. I am emetaphobic!!!!! always have been.. GRANDMA KNOWS THIS!!! once she saw that I was trying so hard to get the washcloths and shaking and crying, she stopped with the fake gagging..then mom came back from the pharmacy...

Now grandma decided that she is short of breath and mom is taking her to the ER. Suncoast...

I'm so over the drama! I will be so sad and regretful is something is really the matter, but more times than not, this is a game.. attention seeking behavior. Why is it that these doctors don't see it? Maybe they will this time and maybe they can help her for her sake and for our sanity. I'm just so tired of this.

*hugs* Sorry about all of this.

This is about what my Step-Grandma put my family through just before she passed away this summer. She was purposefully making herself sicker when she could have been making herself well... she didn't have to die, she could have easily beaten or at least controlled her diseases (type 2 diabetes and mild heart conditions due to being overweight) if she'd just follow the correct plans, instead she did the exact opposite (to get attention from being in hospitals, and she loved giving the nurses and doctors a hard time while she was there too...) and consequently died from it while everyone around her suffered from trying to get her to do the right thing, take care of her and get her to feel better.

Some people you just can't fix hon, and you gotta leave it up to them. they're in it for the attention and nothing else. Even though it's not always good attention and it's doing nothing but making them feel worse.

Actually, I could repeat this whole thing for my ex-husband, but I won't, there's no need to say the same things over and over again.

I have to say, if there was someone like this in my family, I might actually consider a bounty hunter...
A-hem, consider. I probably wouldn't hire one. But it's a nice thought, or at least can be at times.
Kimmy (The literally correct spelling, unless you're going for a Japanese sound.) I give you my best wishes and I'll be praying for you. I'll even suggest that my pastor pray for you when he asks for prayer requests, which is something I hardly do. Sometimes I wonder where God is in all of this...

So I've been wondering... any birthdays coming up soon?
