They are OK with my mother dying trapped under the coffee table or laying cold and alone in the shower -- no skin off my nose.

In a related event, I discovered that I have a first cousin named Elizabeth from my 23 & Me results.

I don't have a first cousin. My father was an only and my mother's only brother never had children.

My flights of fancy have me adopted. It would explain a whole lot. I mean A LOT. So many things that never made sense make sense.

I know it's just a fantasy but it would be really, really cool if it were true. So very cool.

Sigh.


Wow, that is terrible about your mom. Yikes.

I am thinking your mother's only brother did indeed have a child. Have you reached out to this person yet? I did the Ancestry DNA and proved that I am my father's daughter. He has never really admitted it. Of course I don't speak to him really and now my sister isn't speaking to him, so he will still probably never 'know' for sure.
