Thanks,
yes, the bleeding finally stopped. Thanks! It starting to hurt a bit too. Weird - I had a slight headache as the numbness wore out. Much to my surprise it did not get worse, until now, a minute ago, I had some pain in my gum. I hope I'll be able to sleep...

As for my niece, I think she is receptive to therapy. A few friends of hers are in therapy, her mother is, so it's something she knows about and is somewhat familiar with.

It's sad to say, but my brother in law is physically ill (chronic arthritis for decades and heart condition) and I keep hoping he'll die soon so we can all have more normal lives. So my sister can have a life of her own. So I can breath and perhaps meet a man I find interesting and decent. Etc. People like him live long usually though - they just make others miserable. This is funny... I keep telling my sister to put a lot of butter in the food she makes!!! He's not supposed to eat any. And the thing is that I don't even feel guilty about making jokes like that or wishing him an early death. With everything he's done and said to me, he's lucky to walk still. A friend of mine, who knows about my issues with my brother in law, vowed that he would beat him up if he ever met him. That friend lives far away, and it's probably for the best. It was nice though to hear someone, for once, willing to defend ME. Again, that's what hurt most: the enabling, the knowledge of it all and the fact that no one did anything. No one ever dared to tell him to shut the hell up if he has nothing intelligent to say. I have a feeling he might hear it soon.

Well, I'll discuss all that in therapy in August!
