I sent her an email last week asking her if we could get together for coffee one morning to talk. She answered sure that would be great, she stated she had her grand sons until Aug 8th when they would be leaving for a wedding (I will be taking care of her dog again while she is gone to the wedding). I emailed her back letting her know that I understood that she was busy, and that I would appreciate it if she was able to make the time. She emailed back that would be fine that she was sure that her husband could handle the boys for an hour. That was one week ago. I have heard nothing not even an email.
If she is too uncomfortable or too busy I would surely understand. The silence is killing me. For years even when I lived out of state we have always kept in contact through emails. The last email she sent me was she would email me and let me know if she had the time. I have heard nothing from her. I do not feel it is appropriate for me to email her as I do not want to put pressure on her.
I have a mental illness and keep to myself however it would be nice if I knew someone cared. If nothing else be respectful enough to say I do not have the time or just be honest and say I do not want to be alone with you because you have Multiple Personality Disorder. At least be honest do not ignore me like I am not worth an explanation.
Mental illness is not contagious. I know that most churches/not all, however the church she belongs to believes that Multiple Personality Disorder is really demonic possession. I have done research and learned this. I am not sure if she personally believes this. I wonder if she has not really had personal contact with me without out my kids there (my kids are 20 son and three teenage daughters) because she is scared of me.
Maybe she does not know what to do and does not want to hurt me by telling me the truth. I just wish she would be honest and then I would know where I stand. Another person who wants nothing to do with someone with mental illness. It would hurt me but at least I would know where I stand.
Confused, hurt and no idea what to do.
