Gout and Stress Arrives for 59 Year Old Female

I have never experienced gout until now. I have been stressing about my stepdaughter for the last month. She is marrying a guy she met on the internet in 3 weeks and has NEVER met him. Wedding invitations have never gone out. She has badgered her bridesmaids with lies and deceptions to get them to buy the dress which has included my 16 year old daughter. Its on my mind 24/7. I pester my poor husband every day. I have talked to her until I'm blue in the face and she still insists on going through with this wedding. We haven't been on speaking terms since a week ago. Guess what? Gout arrived last Thursday evening.

How awful for you! I'm sure you are not the only one that thinks she is crazy. It is so frustrating to care so much about her future and yet be unable to stop her making what will most likely be a big mistake.

Gout isn't the only disease that can arrive with stress, so be happy that you have done all that you can for stepdaughter, and for the sake of your 16 year old, (who will undoubtedly learn something from this)start looking after yourself by going with the flow. Make up with the girl (you are the adult, she is obviously still a child mentally)and be happy. Drink to her happiness everyday with Apple cider vinegar (how appropriate!) You've done your bit. Que sera sera.
