She certainly shouldn't have done all that to you, but sometimes when folks are scared they lash out at those they trust most. Even though it sounds totally backward, it is sort of a compliment. Not to excuse her bad behaviour, but hopefully she can get a handle on all of this so she doesn't keep lashing out.

Wasn't it brain surgery too? Was it frontal lobe? Sometimes that can affect personality. Maybe when she heals she will be back to normal.

So sorry Addie. My mom is around your age, and my sister recently visited her. Mom is still recovering from the visit, and we're trying to get funding for a personality transplant for my sister. She was just awful, and has no surgery to blame.

Good morning everyone

I am off to work this morning and then this afternoon I am going to sit outside in the garden and enjoy the lovely sunny day that is heading our way

Great to see you back Tatt!

Did some laundry, finished my book, baked a cake, now I'm watching Ken watch football.

My daughter can have a nasty personality even when she is not sick. The family is used to it. But this illness has made her even worse. It is time to bring her to a halt. She certainly doesn't treat her girlfriends like she does family. I personally think they removed the little part of her good personality that she did have.

The surgery was in the frontal lobe.

My neighbor next door has three daughters. A couple of times when they were in her apartment, they were screaming so lound I thought she was in danger and almost called the cops. Instead I knocked on the door and asked if every thing was all right. I asked her if she was in any danger of being hurt. It forced them to calm down.

My daughter was acting like them. I won't tolerate that behavior from anyone. No matter what their excuse is.

I went to Acute Care this morning and found out that I have Bells Palsy again. I already had it in 1995. They say that it rarely recurs in the same individual again. So what the heck is the deal??? Bells Palsy is a type of paralysis (or weakness) of the muscles in the face. It only affects one side at a time (thank goodness). The doctor gave me two different kinds of medicines to take. I sure hope they help soon because I can't close my one eye lid, and my eye gets so dry.

Steep some tea bags, wring them out and put in the fridge. Lay them over your eye once you close it. It sure helped Shrek when he had Bell's Palsy.

Oh no. A friend had it, and fortunately recovered quickly. It was a PITA for awhile. Hope it goes away fast!
