And, thankfully, so far away.
Is true: "nasty," "selfish," and "drama llama" combine well with "unable to show up on my doorstep on very short notice."
Would prefer not to go further in identifying the party in question than that, though.
Probably about 90% of that 10%, I'm guessing.

As a fellow expert worrier, I think you're right.

Hey, if 10% of the things you worry about actually happen, that's doing pretty well.
Or else not adopting stringent enough protective measures. One or the other.
Hurray for grandpas being right!
What? Like "If you *really* cared about me you'd get on a plane and fly to CA to take care of me while I'm feeling crummy. Selfish vertiginous M'ris!"
Seriously? Things are wrong with people.
Yes, approximately like that.
Hoo boy. Sorry to hear it.
A lot of things turn out to tolerable when they're happening just because you haveno choice (like, oh, say, vertigo). This one, at least, sounds *easy* to tolerate. (I hope so, anyway.)
Definitely the drama llama's loss, not yours!
I suppose it's very nice of them to lay that worry to rest. And to make sure you don't have to worry about them after all.
Your grandfather was a smart man.
And yes, anyone over the age of about 8 who will interpret that as being about them is someone you can do without.
For real? People will reveal themselves given time, won't they?
Still, I am quite sorry you had to go through that. I mean, I believe it's generally better to know what's what and have the way this person really feels about these things out in the open between you, if only so you guys can then (hopefully) move on, but eesh. If there was some way you could get there while completely skipping the drama llama, nastiness, and friend-trying-to-hurt-you bits, I would wish it for you. 'Cuz you really haven't done anything wrong. And it's not like the vertigo is something you actively chose specifically so you could get on people's nerves, for chrissakes. It's bad enough you having to have vertigo without people giving you shit for it too. And I'm really glad you know that. There are some people who would fall into the trap.
Your health problems are not about that other person. Your health problems are about me, because everything is about me. But, fortunately, I'm on your side.
What they all said.
Drama llamas are not welcome--you're not Dr. Doolittle, talking to all the animals. ;-)
I am very selective about which animals I talk to!
Anyone who has walked past me when I addressed a dog as, "Hello, gorgeous!" may think that I'm not, but they would be wrong.
