Close of Mail-gate opening of 5150-gate
Its like watergate but without any presidential ties or conspiracies.
Whelp, DH got a series of texts last night from Toxic Troll. She has admitted Feral Forger to the local hospital under a 5150 hold. Unfortunately the hospital sais that there are no additional beds for her so she will have to be shipped out of town or out of state, according to TT.
Sunday TT asked FF to "please clean her room" very politely according to Munchkin SD13. FF went off the deep end (again) and screamed and cried. So TT gave her a 30-day notice to leave (again). Monday while munchkin was at school, she recieved several texts from FF "Im going to kill myself, I have nothing, no friends, no family. Did you block me? Moms kicking me out and giving you my room, etc..."
Munchkin and I had a long talk. I always just start off with "are you ok?" and then things just came out. She is in between feeling like her sister is using suicide as a threat to get what she wants, and to manipulate everyone, and as a potential possibility. Which makes her really stressed and sad. And in her words, she "just wants to be a kid". Shes feeling out of her league, and doesnt really know what to do, or how to feel. Im in the same boat. I know, because of my experiences with suicide, I must take it seriously.
I just told her that if Feral Forger is TRULY mentally ill, she will hopefully get the help she needs, because "doing nothing gets nothing done", and things havent improved themselves, over this time with her mother. I said that she will get off the drinking and pot, at least. And maybe get the right meds. I told her that if she ISNT actually mentally ill, and IS in fact trying to maniulate, perhaps the time locked up in a mental hospital with "scare her straight". Either way, something drastic needed to be done. She obviously cannot handle life and adulting right now.
We did have a nice evening, after talking things out, oddly enough, with all of us trying hard not to get stressed or upset the others.
I really do not know what the right thing to do is. I dont know the right thing to say. I just told her, "hey, have a great day, everything will be fine."
I hope I dont sound evil, but I have zero interest in swooping in to rescue Feral Forger, who hates me anyway. Im just hoping she gets help, or makes changes, and lives her life peacfully away from me. I just feel like its drama created by Toxic Troll, and she cannot manage things because they got out of her control.
Lots of strange emotions floating in my head right now, I wish I could take a personal day to walk in the forest or on the beach thats close by and contemplate...
