Since my son met and married my daughter-in-law I hardly ever see him, thus I don't get to see much of my grandson either. They think my grandson is better off at daycare than in my care.:( When we do get together it's always on his terms and when everyone else is busy.
I cry most of the time because I miss him; we used to be as close as you can get. He hasn't showed me respect in I don't know how long, according to him I can't do anything the right way and he is ashamed of me.
I'm moving out of state and I plan on telling everyone I lost my family because people can't believe how little I see him especially when I tell them he only lives on 3 miles from me. I have to stop waiting for him to "get time" for me. Whenever I suggest we do something or I need anything the answer is ALWAYS no.
All I ever wanted was a family; I had to divorce my husband after 23 years and now it's been 10 years of rejection by my son.
I moved to this town 3 hours to be near my son, which he said he wanted and now I can't take it anymore.
I have lived here for 7 years, having to give up my friends to move, and this is paralyzing my life by hurting my self esteem so bad I think no one else will want to be friends with me. I only have 2 people "I know" I have to call them, they don't call me.
I'm hoping by relocating and leaving this all behind, I will be accepted by other people better.
