Sorry for a many post but I'm so fed up.
I've been flaring on and off since march, at the moment I'm trying to taper off steroids so know I'm quite vulnerable to another flare so trying to keep calm, stress free and rest as much as possible.
However, my family is at war!! We've always been a really close family but recently my sister borrowed a huge amount of money from my parents and is now refusing to pay it back, it's caused so much trouble and I'm stuck right in the middle. I don't want to fall out with my sister and I'm very close to my mum so don't want to fall out with her either, I've told both of them that I won't take sides and that its nothing to do with me.
Today my sister turned up where I work cos she was upset over an email my stepdad had sent her, which in all honesty was a fair email asking for civility and the chance to talk things through, my sister took the whole thing out of context and turned it into a huge deal. I stupidly let slip that my stepdad was at his parents for the weekend so at least things would have time to settle down, tonight I got a phone call from my brother to say my sister was at mums kicking off.
She knew mum was on her own so took advantage if it, she spent nearly 2 hours banging on the door, shouting through the letter box and leaving abusive messages on the answer phone, my mum was obviously devastated!
I felt awful cos I was the one who told my sister that my stepdad was away, my husband came in from the pub and I was upset and told him what had been happening, he's now really angry that I'm getting stressed and upset and is determined to confront my sister and tell her a few home truths which will surely drag us in even deeper than we already are!!
I'm just exhausted with it all, and I find it so sad that this is ripping us all apart.
I kind of feel as well that no one has taken into account the fact that I shouldn't be getting stressed, but is that me being selfish?
So annoyed with it all now
