I had a talk with Rick (my FiL) while we were building the swing set yesterday. He has also noticed Renee’s internet habits. So at least I know I’m not over-reacting. And it’s nice to have someone to talk to who’s in person.

And he mentioned that George had been doing something very similar before he killed himself. The IA was a contributing factor we think, although George was already unstable to begin with.

I think Rick still feels some guilt about not being able to save George from himself. On the other, he and I both agree that what happened seems to be for the best long term, which is a really hard to accept.

And we talked about how to get her through it – he thinks it’s a matter of time, but also had some helpful suggestions on how to easy through it.

I hope he doesn’t do anything I’ll regret, though. I think he understands the delicacy of handling his youngest daughter as much as I do. trying to get through to her with the least amount of pain and suffering on my part.

That was helpful for my mental state – to get the input of someone close who understands some of what I’m going through, and can see it happening.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
