    if there is no topic, I’d like to talk about detachment… Marnie, your criteria for when to stop was very helpful. maybe we could talk about detaching and safety issues? I don’t want to stir the pot, but I have concerns about her driving for instance… how to know when my concerns are “my problem” or a bigger issue would be very useful… for example, my brother’s program has been encouraging me to contest her guardianship… But I really don’t want this kind of conflict and adversarial position unless it is really necessary, not just ‘prudent’ bc it will tear my brother to pieces to have mom and sis at war, and while it might be in his ‘best interest’ in some less personal way, it would clearly be damaging too… etc…

    • It’s not like I can look to APS for any useful guidance re: when she is a danger to herself, she split her head open, but she is competent to take that risk? Competent to refuse to see dr… etc not a confidence inspiring perspective… Hands may be tied and leaving her be may be the right outcome, but I can’t arrive at that conclusion by pretending it is in the interest of autonomy and self-determination to crack your head open…

    • Sounds like a great idea to me!
