Wow, you really have been through a lot. A lot of kids that start on the street at such an early age don't make it to middle age.
I can see how you would have mixed feelings about your mother. How does one make a decision in a situation like that? I have a stepson that put my wife and I through hell. Especially me. He was an only child, and felt I ruined his "good thing" when I came into the family when he was 11.
I had to do right by him even though at times I hated him. Why? Answer - because I couldn't live with myself if I didn't. That's the way I'm built.
I have Crohn's Disease so having the stress my stepson gave me didn't help. I delt with it and am in remission now. Thank God.
I don't know what's right for you. It seems to me, you have to decide what you will do by how you will feel about yourself after you do it. I'm talking about in relation to your mother. Either way, I wish you the best.

Oh Wizzer....
I really admire you.. you are obviously a very strong person to have gone through all those things in your life and not be bitter about it.  Anger is understandable, and a sign that you are moving forward, strange as it sounds, because you're not locking it away any more.  You seem to have a very compassionate and forgiving nature to still be in contact with your mum.  You know.... if she doesn't show any  remorse or care for you now, she'll never change, so don't keep banging your head against the wall.  I am so pleased you ahave been able to make what sounds like a good life for yourself despite your past, and I'm so happy for you that you have a supportive husband.  Yes there is always someone worse off, but that doesn't make what happened to you any less terrible and you have every right to have those feelings of depression.  I'm so sorry you turned to alcohol recently - but the good thing is you're aware it's not the answer to your problems and will only make you feel worse and slow your return to good health.  Talk to your husband and seek counselling - sounds like you're in a place where you can listen and accept the help they can give you.
I hope your help continues to improve and the tumours stay away - good luck and best wishes - there's plenty of life to live - make sure you enjoy it. smurf
