So a little about my grandmother: In short, she's toxic. Old. There are six of us including her living in one home. My mom, dad, and two sisters. I'm the middle child. My "grandmother" is always trying to start drama with the rest of the family. A few weeks ago she accused me of stealing $5 from her. Before that she had made my younger sister's friends miserable. My younger sister wanted to play with a friend - who was black- so in response to this my grandmother went into her car and followed my younger sister around the neighborhood telling her to go home and not play with black people. My grandmother has also bothered our neighbors about things, got into an argument with my neighbor's mother, and IF she doesn't get what she wants, she starts to lay on the couch near the front door and scream. She screams that she is dying, and does this on and on for at least two hours straight. This had happened roughly a week ago when my older sister refused to buy her chicken so my mother actually took my grandmother to the hospital where she was checked out for 30 minutes and given some prescription medicine. This wasn't the first time my grandmother pulled a stunt like this, crying and screaming and pretending to die on the couch. She had done this before, I can't remember what for, but I remember that my sisters and I were in the upstairs hallway. My grandmother sat on the stairs trying to prevent us from leaving so when we refused to talk to her she again pretended to die and scream for two hours when she was perfectly fine. She has made my mother and father very stressed. My father had supported my grandmother all his life, which is why she lives with us today - plus she has no where else to go. There are so many other stories my family could probably tell about her, but in short she is abusive. All she does is complain, and around last year we tried to get her into a nursing home but it would cost us $3000 a month, something we can't afford. I need help. I don't want my grandmother to make us miserable anymore. My whole family wants her out. Please help. We need help. We can't keep living like this. We don't want her to live with us anymore.
What's worse is that my grandma is even physically abusive. She doesn't let go of a fight until there is blood all over the house. The one time she called the cops on me for fighting her off, then went to all the neighbors to gossip about me and created me to be one h*ll of a monster. Sadly, this has affected all my personal relationships with friends and boyfriends. I didn't even realize that the anger is contagious.
