My grandmother (gm) is a real piece of work and afer years of politely tolerating her, while being miserable. I've separated myself from her. What prompted the break was the fact that she has taken control of my grandfather's care, but he isn't being cared for properly. They have been separated for 40 yrs. My gm has badmouthed him for all 40 of those yrs. My GF is blind and my GM constantly told me about open-wounds that he had. Now why in the world would you allow another human being to suffer in that way. Well those type of comments made me sick of my GM. She also manipulated my aunt, she has total control over this woman who is in her 50s. Lately my GM began telling my aunt that she was fat all the time and my aunt started starving herself. My aunt and GM live together, actually my GM lives off my aunt. I could stand this anymore and as I feel powerless to change the situation, I cut my GM off. She is too negative, manipulative and downright toxic. My GM can't stand this and is now abusing my sister and mother. She refused to attend my sister's graduation this past June. My sister was hurt, but I was relieved to not have to deal with that hateful woman, who we all tolerate because we're related to her. Now this past Sat. my sister had a going away to college party and she sent out invitations to friends and family. She sent an invite addressed to my aunt and family. Well GM went ballistic and called my sister up and balled her out. GM said that my aunt didn't have a family and was only a part of one, that she was didn't know what was wrong with my sister or me and that she was the only GM my sister had left. (We just lost our paternal GM in June) My GM even accused my sister of giving her a funny look over a year ago, when they last saw each other.
My mother was furious, this is just part of the reason I cut ties with my GM. I think the woman gets nastier by the day. I just needed to rant.
