Jo

And his mother was the "sane perspective?" ????!!!

badgerbag

holy crap! it's even worse. whole morning on phone with relatives who are exploding into freakitude. As rook's mum is freaking b/c she got a garbled, fucked up psychotic phone message late last night that was half in k0rean and... i am only hearing it from the sisters at this point. everyone panicking. if he stays there, and is insane, she has to be paying his bills? etc.? sisters saying maybe him being there is n ot a bad thing. my advice was priortiy one is for Mum to protect her own finances and talk to her accountant/lawyer person. The k0rean relatives consensus is that their oldest brother has joined his actually-insane siblings in Insantiy-land and has "aged prematurely, how sad" . no one sure whether to escalate, separate, declare him nuts, etc. or what to do. Or if it's not actually a giant crisis, because if it's not then everyone will feel bad for overreacting.

My reaction was the same as Jo's comment above, verbatim.

Rook

OK, I got my father to call my mother in New
York this morning. He said that the call
last night which so worried her wasn't him (?!).
So some mysterious person called her last
night and left a half Korean message??

So someone has a less than sane perspective,
at least. Anyhow, I will survive and I
will be very glad when I finally get home.

OMG! maybe your mom is also nuts. and bringing up the past psycho episodes (re: yr sister and the "monica lewinsky" incidents) because of her own fears or freakedness that he's skipping out on her basically a separation for an undetermined time period. the financial stuff i totally see her pt of view though. that she can't even pay his bills if she were willing too because she can't get his mail. b/c it goes to his office which she doesn't have keys to!

Well! she is a person who panics... we all know it... and yet! I was convinced. but... you are on the spot.
