I got a horrible email from my mother tonight. I ended contact with her four years ago after decades of dealing with her alcoholism and untreated mental illness. it was brutal. She said she never believed either of us were abused....oh? What about the photos, the psy reports where 3 yr old difficult child stated dad hurt him? She believes a lot of difficult child's issues stem from me smothering him...I.e., taking him away from them. If anything, difficult child wanted even less to do with them than I did. one thing I am proud of....I forwarded the letter to my sponsor, a dear friend and my sister. Then I deleted all copies. My sister will keep one in case I ever want it. I refuse to have that around me. people's ability to be cruel and hateful just floors me. *im not going home until Sunday. Just praying I can sleep. Feeling very lonely tonight.
