CJ has just had her son, MetalManiac, arrested for 'beating her'. All the falls she took left bruises all over (and some scrapes too). She's claiming that he caused all the bruises.
The police also said that I was really "close to being arrested" for stealing the car/joyriding. She's now claiming that she never gave me a key and I had no permission to drive it.
I don't understand how someone can be like this! =-( Just when I think that humanity is ok, I see large scale depravity like unwarranted Palestinian genocide in Gaza and then experience "small scale depravity" myself. It makes me wonder how to trust people. No wonder it's so hard for me to let people into my life anymore. It seems like so many people are just mean and two-faced. How can anyone know who to trust? How do you know they won't turn on you in a couple of months and try to ruin your life???
I drove her to doctors appointments, shopping, to cash her checks, random other places. I helped her sort her shoebox of medicines out. All I wanted to do was help. For a while, she was almost like a mom. For all my own mother's issues, she's a saint compared to the howling monstrosity that has taken over CJ's mind.
I'm sad. I'm hurt. I worry about MetalManiac. I worry for myself.
