First outing since the breakdown

Jan 11, 2016 10:43 AM

So tomorrow will be the first time I will be out alone with my mom since here emotional snap before Christmas. I vowed to myself to not be alone in public with her after her outbursts. Of course she never apologize nor does she even see an issue with what she did.
Short recap
Mom went ballistic weeks before Christmas. Driving irrationally and haveing a shouting match with herself basically because I was still in the car. Screaming and telling me to shut up and that I'm saying to many words...and I dealth with all this during a major flare. And no sleep in four days.
So.. Tomort will be the first time I'm.gonna go out alone...pray for me y'all...

Newfibrogirl if you're sure that it's a good idea to go out with her, I'll be praying that it goes smoothly and without stress. I felt so awful when she did that to you before Christmas. Hang tight and go into the outing with positive thoughts. Sending gentle {{{Hugs}}} and prayers that you have a good day with your Mom. 💕🙏🏻🌻

Thanks guys.. Can..I tell ya it was hard..there was way more to the story then what I stated here.. But I do try to remember she is my mom..u still to this day try to give here respect. Even if its not earned..

Alwazys..thanks..I actually wish it was a different way . but tomorrow is grocery day and I still feel under the Weather from last week. And mom is the only one actually available. I've got my sleep study starting tomorrow night and the next. And cif u will believe even though she knows I'll be doing the sleep study and will be exhausted from not getting sleep . she still expects me to make lunch and dinner on the says I'm doing the study also. Lol...so no rest for the weary .... Lol...

Flappys.. Thanks I'll need all I can get

You are stronger than I Newfibrogirl! I can't be around my mom because her bipolar manic state is too much for me to handle now that my CRPS went full body. She doesn't call or text me unless she wants me to appear at a family function anyways so it makes it easy not seeing her. Thankfully I have the best step mom and bio dad as caregivers and my mom lives a full 45mimutes away with her husband. I'm proud of you for keeping your relationship with her, I remember the story you posted last year and it wasn't pretty.

Thanks Meagan, no it was not. And our relationship has suffered. I see her differently. I stil see her as my mom and I know she needs help she just refuses. My sis has already brought up the idea of me distancing myself because of my health. And IV thout about it..still thinking bout it. But I'm still hopeful she will get the help she needs. Until then..I've started this year off focusing on me. Doing what I need. And sadly most of that invovles not being around my mom. She only wants to talk about her and her health issues. She has never done any research on my multiple conditions. So its all on me..well and GOD..
