On mom's birthday [Sep. 2019] Jeff claimed that he and Doug had apologized to me for yelling at me. He also yelled at me, and hissed....
Last Sunday Jeff said something like we probably have the same condition but our work is different - implication being I'm not really hurt. My objection was immediate but we didn't discuss it. Doug flashed a look of disdain; he's committed to the idea that I'm not hurt.
The visit to Dr. Hill's office was a failure. Jeff still believes what he wants to believe, that I'm not hurt. It's a hatefulness I've never experienced.
