I haven't been on here for quite a while, but I wanted to let everyone know my progress. I have not seen or talked to my Difficult Child for almost a year now. She texted me a nasty little note a few months back with her usual accusations of being a crappy mom and calling me names, but i just ignored it. She hasn't done one thing to change her life, my grandson is more confused than ever. She left his dad and lived with another guy for a few months, without her son. My grandsons dad married another woman and stayed with her long enough for my grandson to get attached to her and started calling her mom. Now they split up and him and my daughter are back together. Im am so sad for my grandson, but i get him when i can. I had him last friday and saturday and he cried and begged to stay at my house and that broke my heart. On a lighter note I met a wonderful guy 7 months ago, and he treats me like a queen. I am with him on the weekends and I dont see my grandson as much as i use to and I feel guilty about that. especially when his dad has him call me and beg me to come to my house. But I feel like this is finally MY time to enjoy my life while i can. I am 63, and I feel that I have done what I can do and I dont have the energy for all of my daughters drama. Dont get me wrong. I still have weak moments where I feel like I am being selfish. And my daughter can still make me sad with her words and accusations, but I am doing better. Its sad that I dont have a relationship with my daughter, but I can honestly say that I dont know how without making my life miserable. I just hope I can have the strength to not let her ever bring me down again.
