Hi grace,  I am so sorry your mom is sick.  I think one thing you said in your post is important....your mom is "suffering", I imagine it is really difficult to relate to how she is feeling physically and even mentally.  That in no way takes away from how your feeling.  Your feelings are very much valid.  I wonder if you have sat down with your mom and just talked to her about how your feeling.

I know that when your physically ill it is extremely difficult to get motivated and want to do certain activities.  Perhaps you and your mom can come up with things to do together that don't disturb her illness.  I don't have children so I feel like I shouldn't respond here but, I grew up with a mom who had depression (still does) and she very much disconnected from my brother and I.  If you feel that things in your relationship has changed or your wanting more attention from her then I really do think calmly discussing this with her would help.  Chances are she doesn't realize your feeling this way.

I am sure more people will give you some suggestions also.  Let us know how it goes....

Hello Grace,i can already feel you are a wonderful daughter so you have no reason to feel horrible and please don't. i am not sure how i can assist your relation with your mother but please don't let that effect you.You got to remember after all we are all just human and we can just try our best don give up. in every game we can't be the winner in life is the same way hope for the best and be prepare for the worst. loosing is not bad actually to tell the truth it take time to recover but its possible.....
and now crying is alright i cry all the time but remember if you are the wall and your mother is who paint on it .. and if the wall is not strong or no wall no one can paint . am i making any sense? i just want you to take care yourself first than you can assist others . foundation got to be good to build the tall building ...

Im glad that everything is OK. It is true about the caps, although if it were a problem one of the mods would have said something. Usually if it is one or two posts, we let it go... its not the biggest crime in the world. Im sure Shy would agree with me on saying that.

Hey Gracie,

I too noticed all your posts were edited to blanks after your Mom posted in one of the forums stating that you are being monitored for your symptoms. :)

The lady that brought up the caps was Lyn, a moderator and it was truly a gentle reminder as new members do not always realize the caps are on.

We are still here for you if you want to talk.

Gentle Hugs

Kitt
