danni Posted January 14, 2010 Report Share Posted January 14, 2010 Hello...I haven't been posting much lately but I have been "lurking" some to keep up on all of you I had a pretty hard set back this weekend. It's not even something that should be a big deal. I was talking with my mother, which I don't do all that often. She made a comment at one point about how disappointed she was that I didn't do anything successful with my life and that I was a "waste of a life." OK....she doesn't like me....I get it. But....who talks to people like that? Here's the crazy part... It sent me back to all those times growing up when she reminded me I was a mistake. I felt the same lonliness and worthlessness. It made the flashbacks come back stronger than ever. It's so frustrating that she still has that power over me. I don't want to care but good or bad, she's still my mother so I have a hard time cutting off contact even though she'll toss in comments like this every time we talk. It's hard to describe but it's really put me in a tailspin. Thanks for listening to my rant.... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
