Help me understand this, please
My SGD, "M", SD61's daughter, texted me yesterday asking if everything was ok with Grandpa, DH85. I said, yes, he's still his crazy self, lol. She said her mom, SD61, had told her DH85 only had six months to live. I told her that was news to me since his oncologist says he will live to 100 and die of something other than prostate cancer.
It reminded me of the incident 2 years ago when SD61 told us M had terminal cancer. Long sobbing story of how she can't sleep, how she's planning to clean M's house, making arrangements to have food delivered, planning to babysit. Grief about how M's husband will react. Story about a family member RN who had a long serious talk with M about the gravity. Etc etc. Turns out M had gone to the ER for a digestive prob which was treated with medicine.
I just cannot understand why people do this. Her need for drama must be overwhelming. I know she's already anticipating DH's funeral when she can go full bore bat crazy. Does anyone understand why?
