My single, adult son does not stay in touch. He tends to ignore my calls and texts at time. Sometimes he does this for months at a time. Its been a week this time. I'm prepared to just give up and stop pushing to get him to love me.my mom raissd him but I was still in his life. I really think he's angry with me for that. I've tried and tried.

Thanks Jody for responding. I texted 3 times last week just to say hello. I didnt call because I was feeling bad and not feeling like talking. You see I am fighting cancer and heavily medicated for pain most days. I just figured if he would just respond I would appreciate it. He does this a lot whereby he withdraws from me. He is 49 years old I am 66 yrs. I am beginning to think he's paranoid because he has been so suspicious of everyone.(his neighbors, my brother etc) Maybe I'm in that group. I just wonder if I should continue to touch basis even if he doesnt respond. Its stressing me and I dont need stress.He's the type that you tell to seek professional help. Do I continue to push by calling to say hello when he wont answer. I love him dearly. He has no friends. He's prosperous with good work ethic but he's a loner. I feel sorry for him .

How often are you attempting to call or text him? I am thinking that if you are upset over a week, you may have made attempts 3 or 4 times in a week? What sort of texts are you sending? It may be that you are being a little overbearing and this will just push a child away. But without knowing what the texts are, what the messages are and how often you are calling him, it is hard to know what to advise.
