My brother told my mother that her last husband (of whom she is still with but divorced to) raped him. My mother is in a manic phase and I am worried about what she may do to herself. I am not sure if she would take her own life; she still and has always seen herself as a victim. I will say I was impressed with her compassion when she asked him what she could to do help him. He told her he has moved pasted it, gone to therapy and worked through it.
I called my brother to let him know mom had been asking me why we hate our ex-stepfather…I told her she needed to talk to my brother. He finally told her today after years; he kept it from her for the sake of her sanity….so now we wait.
A positive thing that has happened to me since I wrote was I received my two year chip and finished one of my classes early with an A 🙂
