And how do you feel about it now? I'm curious.....I stopped talking to difficult child 2 (dtr) about 9 months ago. It tore me up for a long time, although she and I have always had a fractious relationship.....but she did so many things to hurt our family that none of us talk to her anymore. I'm now at a place where I feel very sorry for her, but it doesn't hurt as much as it did. I honestly can't see us coming back together for any reason.
