Would you please offer some prayers for me that I may handle my life. I have had good control, but that could change quickly. I heard my father 87 is in the hospital 1,800 miles away. A long story. I broke away from the mental abuse from my mother a dozen years ago. Nobody ever stood up to her, and I was 49 before I had enough nerve. Even then I would have let things go except I saw clearly she was starting her abuse on my daughter. I have been eliminated from their lives, disowned, legally etc. I want nothing but peace. I have my children and grand children, and have clearly broken the cycle. She told both my father and sister that they were never to contact me again. They could not stand up to her, and they obeyed her. What kind of a man listens to a crazed woman who tells him never to contact his own daughter? I hear now he has Alzheimers and I do not know why he is in the hospital. The situation plays games with my head. And, during the middle of the night my son had to put his dog to sleep due to sudden and severe seizures. The vet also found a lump that would be cancer from brain mets. A two hour long drive to get to a night vet. He is divorced and the little dog was everything to him. I pray that he can be strong, he is a good man.
