Oh dear god, dad's in a diabetic coma...
Yesterday for me was bad enough with my nervous breakdown (more later). The psych wanted mom to drive down to stay with me. (she's glad for my monday neurological appt).

But something in mom told her not to go (maybe my counselor would describe her as schizotpyal too :eyes: ). I am so fucking glad she stayed home. Dad had an attack and went into a diabetic/insulin coma. If she wasn't there, he'd have been dead.

She's staying with him for the weekend and I'm glad she is, but the news just flattened me. Especially if she had come down. :scared:

Please send good will and prayers and such. I think mom needs them all the most right now.

22. Hi Progmom! I think you saw my post prior to my edit.
I felt like this was HypnoToads thread and I didnt want to pile my stuff onto it or onto HT's stress so I zapped my comments re my issues.

But thank you so much for your understanding and my best to your brother.
sincerly

Thank goodness for that voice in your mom's head that kept her where she was. Methinks it was your dad's guardian angel.

Sending wishes for a speedy recovery for your dad.

And for you too. Please let me know if there's anything I can do for you.
