Drama & disease soup
New here, hello everyone. I am dealing with an 37 year old SD who has the same genetic disease that her mother passed away from (Cowden's). Anytime she gets a lump or bump, the panic sets in and she automatically thinks that it's cancer. And then the doctors schedule her for surgery. My heart goes out to her, but after 7 years of trying to reassure her and trying to calm her down, it's wearing me out. She gets angry that I don't feed in to her panic and enable her, like my DH does. In fact, she recently complained to my DH how my texts were nasty and that I was mean to one of the gkids...a total fabrication. She forwarded the texts to my DH, who verified that they weren't nasty at all. She really hit the roof because dear old dad was defending me, and not playing into her drama. Needless to say, I have decided to limit my interactions with her. She tends to stab everyone in the back, eventually. Regardless, it hurt me how quickly I became the enemy.
