I've been having many of these symptoms, increasingly so, since moving in with my elderly veteran relative. He has spread that he does not care about death and dying, even bragging how he had no problem killing our kittens when we were kids, and will "do in" a woman or child with no problem. At first, I ate his food;however, for months, I only eat his food whenever I am desperate, such as when I don't have the money on hand to purchase my own. He insists on me eating "at the house" more and more. He is crazy. He has recently, for attention, poisoned his own self, and like some April fool's joke, he wasn't joking when he woke me up very early one morning demanding that I take him to the doctor because he woosed out on the effects of one of his self-inflicted attempts at suicide. He has sabotaged all of my efforts to leave the house. Ironically, he tells everyone that he asked me to come live with him because he is 'sick' and wanted me to 'take care of' him. I don't know what the hell his problem is except that he wants everyone to attend his self-made pity party and I refused to send an RSVP, let alone attend. I don't even have the heart to tell him that his girlfriend told me she don't want him but is only still dating him after over 17 years because everytime she tries to go to quit him he talks about how he would kill himself AND his own kids if they ever broke up (and of course he has her as his sole beneficiary on his life insurance policy). Sick sick sick indeed.
