This episode made me giggle. I remember the frustrations I felt at the time, because for so long Teresa had been out of sight, out of mind. Then all of a sudden her name kept popping up everywhere around me, and everyone kept talking about her and their family issues. Maybe it was because all of a sudden we were all together again. But who knows. I will try to take you back to how I was feeling at the time.

It just seemed odd to me that, miraculously, Teresa wanted to make an effort to resolve everything with her family, after I had been trying to make that happen for two years prior! Why now? I wasn't buying into the sincerity of it all. At the time, I felt like it was all for show and not for real. On top of that, I was getting increasingly annoyed, because I heard that Teresa kept talking about me behind my back saying I was stalking her at "her" gym and blaming me for all of her family fighting. It annoyed me so much, because I knew that I had done so much to try to bring her family back together, and not only was it not appreciated, I somehow became the a--hole, and I felt like Teresa wasn't taking any accountability for any of her own actions to cause the rift in her family.

When I heard Teresa on the phone say, out of her own mouth, that it was my fault she and her family were fighting, I couldn't hold back anymore. I grabbed the phone from Kathy and asked Teresa to stop saying that to everyone and to take some accountability for her part in that mess. It escalated pretty quickly from there.
