Hi bluemeanies, i can relate quite well i think, my mom and i dont fight much, but we dont get along to well either. My sister lives with her, and she takes wonderful care of them, doesnt mind giving them what they need, my sister works three days a week, drives a nice car, her kids have brand new trucks, and i worked hard to get me through school, find a job, find a home (the ex made me loose my house) take care of three kids, and somehow im the bad guy, i dont get it, but you are not alone, i dont understand what makes them do the things they do......but you are never alone, its different circumstances, but same feelings i would think pretty much, being treated oddly, not good enough to help, and we arent so bad ;) someone some day will think that about me, i have to keep that in my head....take care and good luck, let us know how its going
" Dwell not on the past. Use it to illustrate a point, then leave it behind. Nothing really matters except what you do now, in this instant of time. From this moment onward you can be an entirely different person, filled with love and understanding, ready with an outstretched hand, uplifted and positive in every thought and deed."
