Im a Wheel - take a bet
not a topic title, its the song title Im listening to. Plus a topic title. A two-fer.
So - an interesting turn of the wheel...
DH mentioned that SD15 B/M would be with us early, and my "spidey senses" went off, because we are a bit high strung over plans for our 4-day trip. "Whats wrong I ask?" he responds with "the girls are fighting again, so she will be with us early".
I texted SD15 B/M, "whats the issue", to see if she would tell me the truth. Her phone broke and oh yea her sister was insulting her.
This is where it gets interesting. Shes there in person (because I no longer text) and she describes a scene in which her sister SD22 Feral Forger is calling her the "B" word and the "S" word, and other things that are nasty, and all this supposedly out of the blue. Nothing was said by SD15 B/M to instigate this. On further discussion its one of three things that I have discerned:
1. Shes off her meds. She takes anti-depressants and ran out.
Question to folks who have knowledge - does going off anti-depressants turn people into grumpy monsters? Are they addictive like that with actual withdrawals?
2. She is pushing buttons, because she gets a "high" from the drama. She gets "drama kibbles" that make her happy and excited.
3. She is trying to push her sister into further damaging some part of her so that she can further extend her "injury related unemployment" run. Plus she is trying to convince others that her sister is crazy and violent. Ill bet she was recording everything.
In fact, SD15 related how she started screaming and then called DH crying and couldnt talk through the tears (ok, folks, Im getting sucked into the sympathy shredder...)
So I know that something is definitely up. Everytime I underestimate SD22 FF, she comes around a corner that surprises me. Could she really be THAT manipulative and mean? She did that to me. And apparently her friends hate her little violent sister and have threatened to "punch her teeth in".
Question: can I use this information somehow? Toxic Troll is doing nothing to stop this behavior between them. Wants them to "talk it out". Because you know, shes the sane parent.
My first instinct is to stay far far out of it.
