Dealing with a Family Lunatic

My apologies to the individual in this photo, [found here]. I just like the photo, I'm not saying he's a lunatic.

Almost every family has a member, or members, who seem to thrive on causing stress, breaking up relationships, ruining plans, causing chaos, mayhem, and try to look good as they do their dirty work. These people don't operate in the norm, aren't predictable, and really don't care about how others feel. Identifying these people, restricting information you give them, and restricting their entering into your social, business, and personal situations is mandatory for your life's success.

Do you have a friend, that is a real liability to a normal life? Well, these people are easier to take out of your life than a family member. Your kids can get treatment, your siblings will be at gatherings and events, your parents, step-parent, and significant others of your parents have even more ability to raise havoc in your life if they are lunatics.

Lunatics thrive on chaos. Do you have a family member in mind who is this person?

An example is a woman who is bringing her younger sister's 14 year old son to Washington DC. The sister asked, "Will there be bedbugs in the hotel you picked to take my son to?" What!!!??? What kind of question is that? The mother of the 14 year old qualifies as a lunatic. This alone, might not be an example, but there are constant examples, along with the stress and ultimatums of manipulation like, "... you do this, this way, or else ...".

A lunatic parent will be jealous of a certain child, or children. Joy, success, and being relaxed are punished. The lunatic parent will be a menace from just after birth and for as long as the parent is alive if the problem isn't identified and dealt with.

Meet as little as possible with these people. Tell them as little as possible. Be lukewarm receptive, don't let on that you know their condition. Meet them around as few people as possible, if you have to meet them. Don't elaborate answers, "yes" or "no" are best. Give them as little access to your personal, business, and social contacts as is possible. Don't do business with these people. Don't allow them unsupervised access to anything.

Dealing with a lunatic can cause Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, PTSD. Not blaming the lunatic for their behavior goes a long way towards healing. They can't help it. Identify it, understand it, move on, enjoy life.

Choosing not to deal with a lunatic parent can result in [Family Estrangement Syndrome].

Peter Coukos leaves a message for my then 14 year old daughter in video below. His family knows very well what it is like to have to deal with an "alleged" lunatic in their midst.

Peter J. Coukos, I am not sure about the "J", born plus or minus 1955, in Feb. 2002, in Stafford Springs, Connecticut, left this threat along with about 40 others on my voicemail threatening my life and that of my then 14 year old daughter.

Coukos took a sexual interest in my daughter and her friend and was obsessed.

Sounds like you have personal experience with lunatics?

it is hard not to have dealings with lunatics. There seems to be more of the Jerry Springer show lunatics running around than normal people. Check out the Coukos voicemail. I think he's a complete lunatic. He's at least part of the reason I wrote this particular blog. Feel free to email me if you have any specific questions.
