*sigh*

I wish that there was a way to keep someone’s ex-girlfriend from moving to Florida at the end of this month.

She contacted me claiming that

she wanted to apologize for all the drama that she caused in my life and in the life of my kids

but couldn’t I just let bygones be bygones

because she could really use a friend

and she really could use some help

because she’d like to move to Florida to make a fresh start

 

but she can’t do it without someone helping her

So….please?

 

And I almost relented – because she wheedled and cajoled and gods know I can relate to how loud your brain weasels get when you can’t get the meds that you need

and I thought that I might

just maybe

want to show a little compassion*

for someone who is obviously struggling

just in case

she really was trying to make an effort to be sane

(and gods don’t I know about that too)

BUT….

Then I came to my senses

And I suddenly felt the overwhelming need to say:

Nope.  

I can’t.  

It’s too much.

 

(And Loki as my witness, It. Was. Too. Much.  SRSLY.)

 

(So much for Tonglen, eh?)

 

Anyway.

 

So.

Now.

If only someone else would come to their senses and realize that what she is asking for in terms of ‘help’

 

seems

 

obsessive

 

 

disturbing

 

 

and altogether

 

an unhealthy amount

of

Too Much.

 

Boundaries?

 

Oh look…there they are!   Am I the only one that sees them?  Am I the only one that has them?

 

(I hope that he realizes what he is doing before it is too late.)

 

But mostly…

 

I wish that there was a way to keep someone’s ex-girlfriend from moving to Florida at the end of this month.
