She is still talking about moving in this man with liver cancer. Now the story goes that he has a good prognosis as they caught it early. He is taking some kind of non narcotic pain killer that starts with k......
I told her to list the pros and cons. She will do what she wants not matter what I say. Opposing her just causes her to hide it from me.
She said that helping him gives her a sense of purpose. She said maybe she could help him find another place but she really wants to have him at hers. I said, it can give a wonderful sense of purpose to help others but you could help him better if he were not living with you. You need a place to recharge and have peace. We all do.
I do not want this man taking advantage of her nor her taking advantage of him.
I did not share this with my husband as it might not ever happen and I keep things away from him as long as I can as he is in poor health.
A couple of you have mentioned the pain killers that this perspective roommate must have access to. Yep, I thought of that right away.
just another tricky day
