Oh wow, I am so sorry that you have had to endure all of this.
My mother and I have been on the outs off and on all of my life.
I don't mean to sound harsh here,but it sounds like your mother is trying to get attention. Almost like since you are sick,you are getting the attention and she is not. I hate it when people do that.
At some point you can not change your mother. Believe me I have tried to change mine,and I have basically decided that it might be time to just walk away.
I suggest that if she calls you and starts in about
it,then just ignore her comments and change the subject. Or you could simply say "mom,I am not getting into that crap".,if she gets upset,so be it. I would think that after a few times of that she would just give up..
Oh,I am sure you are going to get the "you don't care about
me" blah blah blah.
My point is,when they start acting like selfish children,then we need to treat them as such.
Or you could lay it on the line and tell her.."it is time for you to start acting like a mom,and worry about
your kids..I need you right now"
You need to worry about
I do believe that ones that talk about
it all of the time,are just trying to get attention. But,the ones that don't talk about
it are the ones you really need to watch.
I hope I am not being insensitive about
your mom right now...I am very upset with mine,and she pulls similar crap on me.
Good luck and keep us posted.
