Quote from stevielynn
We are soul sisters . . . my dad drank but he was a real softie. He and mom divorced when I was twelve and then my mom's descent into madness took us all down a dark path.
I have a decent relationship with my dad now and NONE with my mom who only lives a few blocks away.
Oh, yeah, that dark, dark horrible path. All alone with a madwoman, and as a child what can you do?
In my teens, I took myself off to a psychiatrist, thinking everything must be my fault, like mom said, but confused, not feeling it really was.
M.D. spoke with my mom, then told me "You don't need to come back to see me. You're not crazy, but your mother is and the best advice I can give you is to get as far away from her, as fast as you can, and never look back."
