It's kind of a full circle type deal. See, I grew up not knowing my bio dad until I was around 17 when I met him. My mom and he divorced when I was 2. My grandmother (before she passed) told me about my bio dad. That he was abusive and an alcoholic. Well, when I met my bio dad...I also met my half sister. The half sister and I are facebook friends. She and I always had trouble relating to each other because "she loved my dad"...where as I never really knew him. Even after I met him he disappointed me and then some 4 yrs ago, half sister contacted me and wanted me to visit the bio dad in the hospital...I did, mostly for her. Bio dad died a month later. Soooo...daughter in law (after young difficult child got out of psychiatric hospital) contacted my half sister and told her that young difficult child had "burned all his bridges here" and could he please come stay with her and her family. Lo and behold my estranged half sister, said YES...even with a smiley face! And even stranger...Young difficult child is the spitting image of our bio dad. Well, today, half sister texted me via facebook and wanted to know why young difficult child had been in the hospital? Was it his back, depression? Then, she goes on to tell me that young difficult child had a prescription for Hydrocodone that they got filled for him and "should she be checking the pill bottle to make sure he doesn't take too many"? Oh my...It is already starting again. I feel for my half sister. I know young difficult child can be such a sweetheart...but he is a user and abuser of pain medications and people! I told her the truth...That he was in one hospital for his back (to get pain medications) and then sent to psychiatric for "depression" and that she is NOT responsible for overseeing his addictive problems. I thought I had told her well enough on the phone the other day when she called me...sigh, but apparently not. She will soon find out why daughter in law and husband and I cannot live with him like this. LMS ps...I think my half sister took care of my bio dad through most of his life too!
