Sleep Is Tiring

Just finished filling out a questionnaireabout my sleep habits for my appointment at the sleep clinic tomorrow. It was long, just filling it out made me tired. I am sure that was not the goal but it seemed appropriate.

Catching up:
Saturday was very nice. joystormer and I went to see who_is_she at an opening of an art show she was in. Sometime later who_is_she and I went to see Tuxedo. Cute movie; but not much more than that. I have a concept of the movie being a statement of the difference between the neuveaux wealthy and old money class, but haven't spent too much time thinking about it.
I got back in time to receive a call from my good friend challon. He saw my post about me being burned out and was concerned about me. So he decided to make sure I was ok. It is nice to have such good friends.
Sat evening I went with joystormer and Barney to auge_30 and avid_atheist's place. Barney loved the place, he was running around, popping out into their little fenced yard to see what the neibourhood had to offer. Auge and Avid_Atheist seemed to really like him.
He had eaten a rather large child on the way there so he had had his fill and was well behaved.
Augie cooked a wonderful dinner, and we watched Waking Life good movie but mostly just surface noise, no real deep meaning like Tuxedo.
Sunday we stopped by Green River Meats to get some stuff to bring to Joystormer's dad's place for lunch. Also bought Barney some good bones for Chewing (his teeth are nice and white today). We stopped by Joystormer's sister's place. I got to meet her and her hubby. Joystormer's dad and stepmom (or at least his companion) were quite nice.
Got home in time for an enjoyable Sunday dinner and cathartic family meeting.

cathartic

I am starting to really dislike that word.
I don't feel released.
I feel that F is a passive aggressive phychopath.
Now what?

Re: cathartic

Hmmm, a half catharsis?

passive aggressive phychopath

Passive aggressive psychopath?

Does that mean that his motis-operandi is to guilt you into suicide?

Re: passive aggressive phychopath

psychopathy: mental disorder; especially : extreme mental disorder marked usually by egocentric and antisocial activity

Every Sunday we have a family meeting where all can air their concerns, or plans that may effect the house, or injustices they feel have been laid upon them. Every week we practically have to drag the issues out of Frank as about 70% of the time he walks around this house in some kind of repressed rage over the injustices we inflict upon him. Then, after mucking through is contradictions, pointless stories, assumptions, and paranoia, he says it is all good and he is not bitter. THEN he corners either me or Raoul and continues to complain about all the issues he told us were resolved at family dinner. He also talks smack behind everyone's back (except Raoul). It is like he is systematically distroying the 'family' he says he so desperately wants to be a part of.

Re: passive aggressive phychopath

So has this been brought up at family meeting just the way you have described it to us? I suspect so. How did he respond? Are you the only one who feels this way?

Re: passive aggressive phychopath

We have told him he is incredibly difficult to communicate with because he doesn't seem to listen. He says he listens, but doesn't agree. R,c,D,H,M, and I all agree that you never get a sense of understanding when trying to communicate with F. We have called him again and again about sharing his real feelings openly when conflict occurs, but he persists in stating all issues are worked out and just fine then trying to continue the confrontations with each of us singly. Telling him politely that we do not wish to discuss the topic any further won't stop him from talking. You have to yell at him to shut up or just walk away. He takes offense at either.

So would they like to have Barney? You said they liked him.
