Thanks everyone for wishing me a happy 50th. It was great, as I said earlier. But...you always have to have one bad apple. Let me explain how this person is, first of all. She's my sister in law, married to my husband's brother. She makes jokes about metally impaired people and tells these to me, since I have bipolar disorder also. She also tells me jokes about people having "pooping" problems. I have found these in very poor taste and have tried to ignore her as much as possible. She is also one of these people that is "me,me,me" all the time. In other words, her problems are always the worse and it's poor me all the time. Well, anyway, she wrote me and email when I sent out an email saying what a great birthday I had and wanted to know why she wasn't invited. It was a surprise party that my daughter had for me and I didn't do the inviting. My daughter sent her an email,as did I, and explained that it was for the people that she knew I would have the most fun with, and the people I had kept in contact with. I also told her that she had not even contacted me in any way to see how I was doing since starting treatment. I kinda went off on her, to be honest. Then she sends this sick email to my daughter that she is going to commit suicide. I can not believe this. She said she spent all that night in ER, which we know is a lie because she was on the internet and we checked the status of our emails and she had not even read them until the next morning. What do you do in a case like this, completely ignore her or should I write and apologize for all I said in the last email(I actually meant it all) What do you wonderful guys suggest? I know this is not actually cancer related, but in a way it is. I am so mad at this cancer that I don't have time to baby a 45 year old woman who actually has no problems, except maybe emotional. I actually told her one day when she was doing her normal whining that I would be glad to trade places with her. Again, what do you guys think I should do??? Sorry this is so long. Just had to vent. Thanks guys for listening.
