SD61's coping skills
SD61 was here today. For any newbies, this is my manipulative, sneaky, lying, thieving SD. She's on disability and we supplement her living expense ELSEWHERE.
She was telling us her various adventures and the overall message is her coping skills are getting stronger. A recent outage left her without electricity and "I didn't call Dad begging to come over and stay". Her AC is out in her car but she's not asking to have it fixed, said she's ok. Several other examples.
I thought to myself, since DH86 has emphasized lately that he's getting too old to respond, she has realized she can cope with life herself. Top bad it didn't start earlier.
