Here's the situation
On another forum I am on, there is this one lady, and her developmentally challenged sister (I mentioned that, because it will come clear later on) who just lost their mother suddenly, and the sister doesn't have many friends. I briefly met them in Nashville in June at a Fan Club party, and they've both emailed me a bit here and there, and the older sister emailed me recently thanking me for the support and sympathies and birthday thread I started on that board for her, so we exchanged phone numbers, and after talking to the sister a couple times, she calls constantly. She's a sweet gal, but very lonely, and not very etiquettely aware, due to her condition I guess. I say this, because tonight when she called, we were talking about Christmas and how I was finishing up my shopping, and she asked if I got her anything, and how she loves getting gifts. I'm going to send her something small from Canada, just to put a smile on her face
She also tells me about the meds she's on, and what they're for and all, and just rambles on, but hey, I let her talk, because she really has no one else but her sister.
What I want to know is how do I get her to stop calling constantly, without hurting her feelings? I don't want to alienate her, and I love talking to her, but I'm at a loss here, so I thought I'd ask my EHellion family for some advice. FWIW, the one lady is 41 and the sister is 39. I feel bad that they lost their mother, and I want to be there for them and all, but hey.............
