Drama? No, that’s a Death Threat!
Hey y'all... First time finally posting after reading this forum over 5 yrs. Married 20 yrs - both 2nd marriages, Hubby is 78 and I'm 60 and we live in a lovely coastal retired community. He has 2 daughters, 49 & 52 - I never had kids. Eight yrs. ago, tragically and sadly because of addictions, his son committed suicide leaving 5 children w/out a father. DH's son hid his demons and had years of recovery. An unthinkable loss that no parent can ever really heal. He & I had a great relationship and I adore my grandchildren.
My OSD is also a addict, homeless and living with some gang banger out of his truck - fortunately across the nation. She also has a son, just turned 20, who she lost custody of when he was 3. His father has done a great job but this young man has been thru the ringer because of her. All these SKIDS grew up privileged, college degrees, cars - especially the SDs as they feel entitled where my SS wanted so badly to follow in his father's successful shoes.
Fast forward - OSD has financially abused DH most of our 20 + yrs together and I was a thorn in her claw as I saw the truth. I have been supportive when she tried to help herself and never ugly to her - I took a big sister stance. Her father did her no favors enabling addictive behaviors but "guilt" is a strong thread throughout this forum.
Recently she texted me that she was out on the street again cause her boyfriend hit her, blah blah... She was just tying to pimp us to get her a hotel room. DH had a bout of Diverticulitis and was in bed for a couple days trying to heal & recover. Told SD I was not going to share her situation with her Dad cause he needed to rest... Told her she should call 911 on boyfriend and they would find her a safe shelter. She went ballistic. Texted me if anything happened to her father she would slit my throat and watch me bleed out. Cut off my fingers and f**cking kill me.
Now I know she's all the way across the country and can only find money for Vodka - so chances of her showing up are slim... But I've never been threatened before and it is not something I dismissed lightly. Couple weeks later, told DH about text when he felt better. Oh - "he's sorry"...
Last weekend she emailed DH that when she could, she wanted to make a surprise visit. THAT'S IT!! I said that was not a good idea... Tuesday morning I took matters into my own hands and reported her to the police with a copy of her text. If she ever pulls that shit again - I will prosecute her skanky ass. DH has been a dick since then - big f**king deal. Oh yeah - I completed my Concealed Carry Weapon class, start private lessons with Master Instructor next week and going to a Gun Show this Sunday - right after church.
Life is never a fairy tale - but if I knew 22 yrs ago what I know now... These young women have to get out - it will only get worse - much worse. Thanks for enduring a long post, Sisters! Stay Strong or Run Long!
