My grandmother AND my mother's houses were robbed yesterday. My aunt is having heart trouble over it and my mother is in the hospital. I'm leaving for a little while.

This is the SIXTH FUCKING TIME my grandmother has been robbed in a year. She won't go to a home, but we may have to have her committed to one since she can't take care of herself. She won't allow others to take care of her, so we may have to commit her or something. She's not mentally ill, she's about 75, but she has no backbone and let's people COMPLETELY RUN HER OVER. She knows who's robbing her, but she doesn't want to put "family" in jail, and doesn't want to get upset confronting them. The person she has in control of her "finances" hardly buys her enough food to eat and she's down to maybe 90 pounds (she used to be about 120). When anyone makes a big deal out of it and wants to confront the person about buying her more food, she gets angry at US for trying to "start a fight". She's too afraid to stand up for herself. If that isn't a reason to have her committed, I don't know what is.

I can't make her come with me, but I'm going to get MY mother away from that dump.

If you've ever had to have an elder family committed to a home, please give me some tips on how to do so when the person is against it. I'll read it when I get back, or email to rlinsdale@yahoo.com
