Strange Days

I haven't been writing that much do to some insanity at my home.  My sis in law lost her doctor.  Chaos ensued as she went into full blown withdrawal.  She got taken out by ambulance and signed her self out.  She went totally ape shit.  She attacked her son with a piece of broken glass.  I hate calling 911 but I did.  Today she went to her primary care doctor and they got her straight on a better med regimen.  Than she got mad at my son because he told her that no one should be that dependent on medication.  His timing sucked, but Jay has lived through addiction and he is a total  health nut.  He also brought up her late husband which was not right, but they were having a text war.  A 52 year old woman and a 22 year old boy.  I did what I do best.  The dog and I went in my room and shut the door. 

I love Tina dearly.  I personally am not the poster child for perfect mental health, so I am not one to judge.  It goes beyond the medicine with her.  She really does need to see a counselor. 

I just did my therapy.  Planted more flowers in my garden and played in the dirt.  It works for me.  I will be writing more regular again.  Sometimes the damn real world just interferes.  Peace!

O Wow, That sounds scarey, I hope you're OK. And she's OK. All of you.
I'm glad you've got your garden and your dog Lori. Take care x

Drama over the medication..ugg..I've been there.

I try to remember those feelings are so real for the person having them, no matter what "their part" was. Anyone can end up there.

You two have been through a lot together, and I hope this storm passes.

It's good of you not to judge - it's such an easy trap to fall into. Glad you have your own wee escape sorted for when the world gets in the way. We all need our little patches of dirt.

bugerlugs63- I am fine. I have learned through experience to never argue with with someone who is in withdrawal (or high/drunk). She finally got sorted out with her primary care doctor as of yesterday, thank God. I have noticed that she is a very needy person. I think that is common with addicts. Yes, the dog and flowers keep me sane.

Whitemist- She is okay, for today. I admire the PA police who were on the scene. So unlike the Baltimore police. They were calm and gave her respect and treated her with dignity. That made a huge difference.

luluberoo- We have been through alot together. I think that is why forgiveness is easier. Medication drama, or lack thereof, is no fun for anyone. She has a very nice female primary care doctor who has an excellent bedsider manner. That makes a huge difference. It's amazing the importance of medication to so many people's lives. (Myself included) We are ok, and hopefully in for a smooth patch again.

icyHighs- Well said dear. We do all need our patches of dirt or a pen and paper. Whatever works, right?
