He also has a mental illness which contributed to threats of suicide recently when he found himself in the hospital. Family is trying to get guardianship of him for his own good. Family friend leaked this to him, and now he has his own lawyers. Hospital is TRYING to kick him out as they are no longer treating him for the stroke, and no longer want the liability for his suicide threat. Also, they seemed really ill equipped to handle an elderly man with a mental illness. Is this new or something for them? Is this something that they don't go over in medical school? Geez Louise!!
Meanwhile rehab nor nursing homes want to take him either. Family is ill equipped to deal, as this would have to be a full time gig, complete with doing medical tasks that would make me quite nervous and monitoring his medicine intake et. As you might imagine, my father in law just wants to go to his non assisted apartment. The hospital that was threatening to let him do that, backed down after all while the family scrambles for alternatives. Ugh.
I guess this is all the thrill of making it to your golden years? I am hoping once an assisted living situation is found, he thrives in it like my grandmother did.

Huge mistake, instead of getting the manic part, I am way down in the dumps. Had a crying jag all yesterday. It so sucks.
Everything is suddenly so "heavy" feeling, and you feel you are unable to deal with any of it. But life goes on, and you have to whether you feel really bad or not.
I hate it, I really do. Why can't my body just regulate the appropriate hormones or whatever?

And here are the pictures of my old childhood home in it's glory.
Er, what tricky marketing plan are they using LOL. Did they loose the pictures of the house before or what? Now our house is down to 309,000 while it looks like it is now in the 140,000 category. I have added a new tag to check the progress called "Real Estate Mogul". An apt title for my competent monster who was insisting on being allowed to sell our house. Bwahhahahahahahhahahah!! I think not.

For squirm factor, I am particularly partial to a couple of gory scenes here. I have had bad dreams about this. I mean not in these circumstances, but....
Acting is so so. One kind of sexy scene that becomes the basis for why the neighbor is "after" them. A pretty original story I think. I can't think of any that I watched that involved poisonings, except maybe Arsenic and Old Lace, which was sort of a comedy in a lot of ways. Story line does have some wholes though, and the typical spineless and helpless female victim.
So I dunno. I guess I recommend it for the somewhat original story line and gore factor, though the not well thought out story line and borderline acting would make it pretty tough to watch again.
