relationship with my mother

Shelly - posted on 03/28/2013 ( 1 mom has responded )




My mum didn't want me to get married to my husband, she has been distanting herself from me and husband and 2 children (my eldest son & me used to live with her & he can't understand why she won't let him stay for the weekend or anything, She even forgets his birthday and won't have anything to do with my 2nd son who is my husbands)

In the last two years she's been making me out to be really nasty to her and to make matters worse, they believe her. Lately, she's been saying that I won't help her unless she pays me and I don't know what to do - if I talk to my brother about it he just says that he doesn't want to get involved

Not only have I lost my mother, she's made sure that the rest of my family including aunts, uncles and cousins think I'm a horrible and nasty person

I'm going through a rough patch with my husband - we've been together for 14 years and I have no-one to talk to - does anyone have any advice to who I can turn to for some advice

I don't have friends where we live

My mom did something similar when I had may son. She told everyone I wasn't providing the right foods for him when he was younger. I don't know if you were close with her mom before or not but I have never been super close with mine. When I found out she did that I stopped telling her things that were going on with me and my family unless she specifically asked. I was afraid of her turning things around again. I know it's hard and maybe not ideal but maybe you'll have to do the same or something similar. You don't need people who think down on you like that in your life, That's just my personal opinion. I wish you luck
