I am very blessed to have been raised by my terrific grandmother, Nana (she has raised me since I was born). I catagorize her as my Mother and I wished her a happy mother's day.. she is my world. When I was born, I almost died because my mother was on drugs and lied to the doctors about it.
My "real" mother, the one who gave birth to me, she really let me down. I've only had one mother's day with her. Last year. She was "sober" for four years and my sister and I had a very lovely mother's day with her. This year.. She is off the wagon again and it really disappointed my sister and I. (our mother has always been on drugs (crack, heroin, speed), drank, gambled, you know name.. she does it). She is turning 42 tomorrow the 14th of May. I wonder if she will ever grow up and learn.
I just wanted to know who else hates Mother's day as much as I do. I literally want to forget about this day. Sorry if I offended all the Mother's out there. It is just very traumatic for myself and my sister.
Does anyone else have Mother trauma stories? Please share. I'd love to talk with someone. xoxo
