Under the covers

I really didn’t want to get up this morning.  This post will be short because I stayed in bed as long as possible.  It was warm and cozy and I just wanted to keep on sleeping.

ROTC meeting went well last night.  Finalizing plans for the big Dining Out Awards March 26. On paper, everything looks good but I need to get on the phone and see if we can get more parents to help out.

SIL, Kim, hasn’t been doing well at all. She’s been delusional for almost a month.  Thinks she had thirteen children and they were stolen from her and sold. Keeps reliving a rape while physically screaming and thrashing and trying to get away.  I kept praying that she’d come out of it but I saw on Facebook this morning that that they’re moving her to a facility in Indiana.  My brother says the doctor’s think she has some major issues in her past that she’s going to have to deal with that are keeping her from getting better.  Was she raped?  I don’t know.  I know that she never had 13 children that were taken from her and sold.  It’s heartbreaking for both Kim and my brother.  He doesn’t know if these events are real or not but Kim thinks they’re real and it’s breaking his heart that he can’t do anything to help her.  They’ve only been together about ten years or so and she’s not very close to her family so there’s probably a lot of pain in her past that he isn’t aware of.  Everytime he, (or any other man) walks into her room, it sets off a screaming and kicking match and it’s obvious that she’s terrified of something.  I hate that they’re going through this.

I didnt want to get up this morning either, and now all I can think about is going to bed early…

Sorry to hear about your SIL’s problems

I was hoping that no news was good news as far as Kim was concerned. This has to be so hard for your brother and in turn on the rest of the family. Will he be able to go with her to the facility in Indiana or will he have to return home? It has to be such a hard decision b/c even if he knows it’s the best place for her he has to feel like he’s not doing enough.

Once again, I have to wonder why these things happen 🙁

Oh wow I am so sorry to hear that! I definitely agree she must have had some traumatic experience when she was younger. I wonder if 13 kids just represents the age she was when this event happened and if she felt it stole her childhood?

I’m sure he already has but I hope he contacts her family and tries to understand what happened to her to bring up this trauma- it has to be something.

I’m hoping for the best for you guys *hugz*

I am so sorry to hear that Kim is going through a rough time (and her DH as well). I hope that they can get to the bottom of this soon for her recovery.
