My SD59 never fails to amaze. Her lies and fantasies are never-ending. Im posting for your entertainment.
Her daughter, SGD29, "M", is a teacher and the mother of a 5- month old. Mother and daughter have had a strained relationship for years due to SD59's many misdeeds, including draining M's college fund causing M to finance her education with student loans. Since the birth, they have grown slightly closer altho M wisely keeps her at arm's length and is wary.
M has had some digestive health issues lately. She was in the hospital awhile for tests. SD59 called the other day and spoke with DH at length. He looked grave, said, "that doesn't sound good" and said, here, tell JRI. SD59 was in tears, said M's tests don't look good, said a nurse family member had come over to M's house to explain the condition and console her, said she probably only had months to live, planned to go to her house today to clean, cook, do whatever to support M, planned to take food, planned to create a support group of relations to send in meals, babysit and clean, SD59 was sobbing, said her therapist had offered to do a 3-way with M, was praying, can't eat, couldn't sleep, "why her?", poor son-in-law, etc.
I have been through too much with SD59 to believe anything she says and suggested she wait until M's next Dr appt in 2 weeks to hear the definitive word. I also said the best thing she could do for M was to take care of herself, eat, sleep. Since the call, I haven't discussed with DH.
M texted me last night to say she's fine and she doesn't know why her mom is telling everyone she has cancer. I wasn't able to talk to her until today. She is fine, is on meds for her condition, is back to teaching on-site some. She called out SD59 on her lies but SG59 denied telling everyone she had cancer. I told M I don't believe anything unless it's verified and asked her to do the same if she heard "news" about me. She laughed and agreed.
Disengagement works, guys.
