Whatever floats your boat...
I need to share what some of my relatives have been doing to me since my Mother
passed, even though I am embarrassed to admit I have these people in my family.
I'm hoping some of you can give me some perspective on this.
I have three aunts who are my Mother's sisters, living near me. One lives in my
building, two live in the highrise across the street. When my Mom had the stroke,
and had just been admitted to the hospital, she called me to say that one of her
sisters, I'll call her 'C', had taken a valuable necklace from her that she was wearing in
the hospital, and said she was going
to put a stone in it and hold i† for my Mother. 'C' had coveted this necklace for years,
and once I heard her literally screaming at my Mom and chasing her around our condo.
She had made up a lie that their Mother promised the necklace to her after my Mom
passed. I should add here that 'C' is a sociopath who causes arguments and fights
wherever she goes. She once whispered in my ear at the funeral for an uncle of
mine words to the effect that if she had my health problems she'd kill herself.
At the end of the services I told her to "shut up and stay away from me", and
she acted like she had done nothing wrong. My Mom and I left the service because
of 'C'. Apparently others noticed that something was wrong and there was a big
discussion about it. One of my cousins came up to see me and said it was the
worst thing she ever heard someone say, which made me feel a little better.
It gets worse. When my Mother passed away at home, I called my aunts to tell
them. 'C' came over, I was in my bedroom. I couldn't see my Mom like that. 'C'
stole every piece of jewelry my Mother had on at that moment. I didn't know
this until later. When I found out, I called my brother, who called 'C' and accused
her of stealing my Mother's jewelry. It apparently turned into an epic confrontation,
where even 'C's daughter told her Mother off. I feel that I need to add here that this all may
sound like petty stuff, but my Mother's jewelry is part of my inheritance, and because
I am disabled and live on SSDI, (Social Security Disability), which is below poverty
level income, my bills are quickly eating up the little savings I have. I have nobody
to leave the jewelry to, and I will unfortunately need to sell it to pay bills, if anything
is left after my aunts are done.
I feel a little bad about posting this stuff about my family, and may take this down
at some point.
