Grrrr... [Jun. 6th, 2013|09:04 am]
Tony Grist
Ailz rings her mother every day and gets met with a barrage of snark and self pity. Dot is desperately jealous that we're down here paying attention to my mother and not up there paying attention to her. I stood in for Ailz the other day and got a taste of what she's up against. It was nasty. So I put on my shining imaginary cricket whites and protective gear. The way to deal with such people is to think of them as tricksy spin bowlers and go forward to them and block everything they send down.

And, maybe, every once in a while, sweep them to the boundary.

Ailz's word for her mother's behaviour is "dishonourable". I can't think of a better.

Is Dot physically able?
She is feeling emotionally abandoned and that's rough. It isn't in her mental make-up not to feel that way, unfortunately, and she doesn't even realize how her jealousy aggravates your feelings towards her. She has to be encouraged towards finding people she can spend time with, people who are of her own age and condition...is that possible?

Yes, she's physically able.

We've tried to point her towards outside interests. And now we're no longer around she seems to be bestirring herself a little. She went to an exercise class on Tuesday.

Are you familiar with Cruse? Is there a local branch that Ailz's mum could attend.

My Dad got a lot out of the meetings when my mum died. He was a relatively young widower, only in his late-50s, but perhaps there's something that they offer that would suit Ailz's mum?
