TW: domestic violence, mental illness, white supremacy bullshit

First, something happy. Beau and I are snuggled up watching Star Trek with gluten free flatbreads and non alcoholic Cabernet. I am grateful for my life. I gratefully took all the wonderful feedback from my ED/BDD post and enjoyed the heck out of my tasty dinner. Here goes.

Tonight my step brother strangled my step mom. She got out of his grip and called the police. He was ranting in accents and in German, calling himself a nazi. This is all because she told him he could no longer keep his box of knives in the house. The police came and did nothing, other than removing him from the house and dropping him off somewhere on the island. They apparently couldn’t arrest him because they did not witness his attack and there were no marks. Sounds like grade-a bullshit to me.

Mom has resigned herself to her son’s death. She believes he will probably kill himself. I am sad about that, really, truly - but I am really worried he will come back with his box of knives. I called my grandmother and she is in a state - she doesn’t sleep when she’s worried and this whole week, really the whole saga with bro, has been horrible. My 91 year old grandmother should not have to live through this.

Well, there you go. I hope to god that my family will be safe. I’m praying.
