Falling Out... in And So It Goes....

Within the last 24 hours, my oldest sister and I had a major falling out. I will spare the details, b/c there really is not much to tell, except to say that last night I phoned to tell her something. She was very condescending and talked down to me, so in an e-mail, I told her that I was cancelling our plans for today. That was last night. I had been up since 3am. At the dr.s office, they let all of the patients in ahead of me, even the ones whom came in after I arrived. My appointment was for 10am. I got there a little after 9. I was not seen until going on 11am. I was ready to walk out. I was spitting nails. I did not get home until after 12pm. The way the bingo crowd treated me was terrible. A so-called friend whom comes over to have me look up things on the computer for him, is always making off-color comments to me. I have had it with him, as well. Another acquaintance knocked on my door this morning, wanting to make a call on my landline. He stayed on my phone for 45 minutes. Finally, I said, “Tim, you are going to have to wind down your conversation, b/c I have things to do. So, to the other person on the line, he said, “I am being thrown out”, then he got off of my phone. I said look, I am not throwing you out. I have things to do. I have had it with him, too. He is just using me for my phone. Before I let him in, I had already hit rock bottom, and was lying down on the couch, staring out into space, so you can imagine what that little scenario did to me.
Bear has tried to be very supportive of me, throughout this whole period. I am beginning to think that I am relapsing into Bipolar Depression. Time will tell. My conversation w/ my sister was the icing on the cake. More later.

I am sorry you had a falling out with your sister. My sister and I have a so so relationship as she can be condescending to me as well.

Thank you for your note. At least the two of you have some kind of connection. My sister told me that I will not be hearing from her for a long, long time.

Oh I have definitely cut back on my communication with her. She has a habit of not responding to my calls in a timely manner. Most times, calls go other voice mail and a lot of times I just hang up. She doesn’t work altho she does do a volunteer work but it isn’t cuz she is super busy. I don’t get it.

Life is so very short. I am hoping for a reconciliation.

Can you get in to see someone if you think your bipolar disorder is acting up? Take care, I hope it will all be well with your sister.

I have a therapist via telemedicine. I won't be talking to her until next month. Thank you for your note.

I got to talk to my psychiatrist via phone today. It really helped. Hang in there, a month isn't too bad :)

I sent my sister a very detailed letter with my deepest apologies. I keep checking to see if she has responded.

I've had a few hiccups with my three sisters but patched things up fairly quickly. How hurtful for her to treat you like that.

It was the tip of the iceburg, among other things that have been going on with people.

I cut ties with my sister and her crazy offspring over a year ago. Should have done this decades ago. They're a scary bunch alright, very vindictive, selfish people.

I am sorry to hear that. You did the right thing.
