Parents

Sorry I've been MIA. Work was crazy and then we took off to FL for a few days. Came back to a shitstorm of course. So yes, I owe you all a real legit post but this is going to be a quick little vent before I get back to work (yes, it's 9 PM) about parents acting like children.

Just found out tonight that not only is my dad moving out and getting a divorce, but that he's moving 8 hours away....on Friday. Seem a little hasty?? Not for someone who's clinically depressed and regularly self-medicates with car bombs (the drink, not an actual bomb). When my brother talked to him about his drinking, he said it's ok because he typically only binge drinks 1-2 times/week and he never drives. Sounds like a teenager at all???

So I'm left with a wreck of a mother, an insane amount of work to do, and pretty crappy mental health of my own. My mom is staying with us tomorrow night so she doesn't have to be around when my dad loads up his truck. Ridiculous.

Again, sorry for the dump and I do promise a real post as soon as I get my head above water

*hugs*

Oh, damn. I'm so sorry your family is going through this. :::hugs:::

Heather said...

I'm so sorry.

I wonder if there is something in the air. I know two people who have in the past month done things similar to this. One with diagnosed mental disorders who supposedly isn't taking her meds and another who is undiagnosed and almost yearly at this time of year gets really bad. It always seems about this time of year that people start having episodes.

I hope they work something out as much as for your Dad as the rest of the family.

I'm visiting from NCLM (I see you bowed out, so no need to return the visit, plus I see you have a LOT on your hands). I'm so sorry this is happening to you guys right now...I hope things will work out in the best way for all of you soon.

Adriane said...

My God. When it rains it pours. I'm so sorry to read this. I can't imagine how you must feel right now. Stressed with work, stressed with family and pregnant on top of it. Please take care of yourself. I'll be thinking about you.

Morrisa said...

Yikes! So sorry to read about the issues with your family, but remember, when you are taking care of everyone else, don't forget to take care of yourself too.

So much shit to deal with, i"m sorry.

K @ ourboxofrain said...

I am so, so sorry that this is happening to you and your family. It absolutely sucks. I can only imagine how hard it is to be asked to step into a different role with your parents right as you're preparing to step into a different role in your life in general. ((HUGS))

Jennifer said...

Kim said...

Ugh, so sorry! Parents that act like kids drive me crazy too. My mom and dad are divorced and he lives in Georgia (we are in NJ) ad also left very suddenly. My mom plans trips out of town when she knows he is coming to see my brother and I! nclm

Fuck, that just blows. It's a lot to handle all at once. Hang in there.

~Carrie said...

Sorry you're getting bombarded with all these things at one time. I hope things get better soon.

The Town Criers said...

I am so incredibly sorry. Will you let all of the in-town girls know if there is anything we can do to help? Either you or your mum?

Rebecca said...

That sucks...family issues are always such a huge stress...try to keep yourself calm for the pregnancy and just hug your Mom as much as possible.

C said...

I'm sorry for all the drama, you certainly don't need that! I hope you can find some time to relax and recharge your own mental health.

Sorry :(
Remember, make sure you treat yourself well through all this, and maybe take your mom out to try and cheer her up a bit.

Jeez, sorry about your parents. That really sucks. Keep your head up and tried not to get mired in their issues (as much as that is possible).
