my mom is a wonderful woman, she is the most kind hearted person who gives 200% all day long, every day. everyone loves her. but i'm so upset and i feel so guilty for being mad at her. she is too upset to talk about it and my dad is too upset to talk about it. but my mom has suffered so much from depression, especially when i was little. so, she did everything right, she did the best she could, but she came from a really hard family, a really unsupportive family. and i feel like even though she did her best, she was so unattached emotionally to me when i was growing up. and i know she feels so much guilt, and i know it wasn't her fault, but i am so mad about it now, as i see it's affecting my life, and how it has affected my life so deeply.

Why don't you tell her what you just told us. That kind of sums it up for her. But now that you have recognized what is going on and how it effected you, it is time to move on. We figure out first what causes our problems, recognize it for what it is and then move on with our lives. You need to work on you now and be the best person that you can. Learn to forgive, and get on with your own life.

Do you go to any counseling or read any self help books? It really helps us to regain our lives back. Try it.

I hope that you feel better soon. Keep posting and know that we do care.

Hugs, Karen

^^^^ EXACTLY! Print this thread out, take it to her and read what you wrote. Hopefully this will start the dialog and you two can share whats going on.

with your past and your future precisely divided, Am I at that moment?. . I haven't decided.
