My most painful memory

This pain ironically didn't involve any physical violence at all, nevertheless it is STILL the worst example to me of the kind of person he is. I hate that I let him take from me something I can never get back, so I guess the real pain lies in my choices in this, not so much in anything he did. But I've put it off as long as I can now, do here goes.My
My younger sister, the muse for my screen name, was diagnosed with stage iv breast cancer at 26. Although she lived a short 30 minute drive from my house, and we were very close emotionally, I had to simply talk on the phone with her several times a day because to visit her caused fights in my house that lasted literally days. I found myself taking time off work secretly just to spend some time with her because to openly defy him just seemed to much. Every holiday we spend with his family and on Easter, six months after her diagnosis he asked me, as he was leaving his mother's, what time I would be up the road. My sister lived about 5 minutes from his parents and I planned on stopping at her house on the way home, so I told him this....mentally cringing as I said it, but expecting him to act decent as his mother was sitting right there. He looked at me and said"I wish that bitch would just hurry up and die already." In shock, I just screamed at him"fuck you, you asshole. I wish you would just die already!". (For which I felt horrible and apologized profusely to his mom for).

What she said. Ok, I agree the outburst wasn\'t the best response, but really, what more could he (or she, for that matter) expect?

I don\'t blame you one bit. You took responsibility and apologised, which was more than you ever got from that sorry piece of you-know-what. And his actual behaviour? Don\'t even get me started...
