    Hopefully she made it back home...outdoor cats in my area become coyote snacks in short order usually, I bet up in your area even more so

    Ah that's right, getting kicked out must have been brutal. My sister is exactly the same way; she needs our mom to do just about everything for her. It sounds like your sister wasn't secure enough to not take it personally when you enlisted even though it wasn't about her at all. (That I understand). Sucks that she is in that position. Maybe the maturity and awareness will come with age.


    My dad was pretty much always away for work and my mom and sister were always in codependent shouting matches - makeup cycles so I started to distance myself and become more independent as a kid. It's gross but they are pretty much reliant on one another to regulate each others emotions because they can't take care of themselves in that way.

    Plus I was "the man of the house" so I had to take care of shit that neither of my parents did. When my dad was home he was usually "too busy" and my mom was always preoccupied with taking care of my needy sister so it was really a fend for myself type of thing.

    It's taken a long time to really mature enough to be emotionally independent and not fall into the codependent enmeshed family trap. That's also how I ended up with such a psychotic ex; I thought her behavior was fine because it fell into the mold that they laid out for me

    What sucked most about that is feeling blamed, as a teenager, for the crap between your own parents.

    I remember my mom and dad arguing over the phone every other day, arguing about custody, and how she was crying every time she got off the phone. Being the oldest, I was pretty much the scapegoat and was treated way different than my younger siblings.

    That sucked for years but it's really made me a much better, and stronger person in the end. Some of that shit never goes away though...

    Being a military brat, my dad was always out as well. It was mainly because he was on deployment, being an infantry soldier.

    Each time he'd come back, he was a bit more distant. Drank and smoked a lot, I'm talking 2 packs a day of Marlboro reds.

    He did try to connect with me but by forcing me into every other sport you could think of; baseball, soccer, football, even martial arts and boxing. Only thing I stuck with was boxing and kick boxing which I got good at.

    After the split and all, my mom and sister were just like your own mom and sister. Took my mom quite some time to become independent all over again, but my sister never picked up on it.

    All she does is work a minimum wage job and smoke weed all day every day. She has no desire to become anything or do better for herself and it doesn't help that she's got a low life piece of crap boyfriend she's still with.

    This is the same guy who's house I went into and threatened because my brother had told me that he was physically abusive with her at one point.

    The shit we do for family huh?

    Ditto, I try and use Wi-Fi whenever possible too for security reasons...have had my bank account compromised one too many times over the last few years and I suspect it might be connected to how much more frequently we shop online using our phones now. Never had an issue getting reimbursed, thankfully Chase is really good about that

    Do yourself a favor and cut that all out. Curt makes a plug-n-play version that doesn’t require splicing.
