    Guys, you know my relationship with my Daughter is a me give and she takes relationship. I am a grown woman and I'm fully aware of what I am doing. I have just finished redecorating her children's rooms in her new house (helps Mom is a designer) Bought all3 children all including the little guy to come their fall/winter clothes. But I'm a little hurt she still hasn't asked me how my biopsy went or if everything was OK with it. She is a nurse, and I am her Mother a little sensitivity here would be nice. I swear, somedays if not for my Grandson I think I could terminate my relationship with her without any repercussion, on either end. She is all so worried about her MIL upcoming back surgery. Never a mention of how are you Mom? Always demands, when are you finishing this or that in her new place. God, I am in a bad mood today , But sometimes you just get tired ya know? Thanks for letting me vent. Have to go finish for my yard sale tomorrow 1st one in 7 years so you can imagine the amount of stuff a designer may have in her basement.

    Hmmmm, Simey, sounds damn frustrating to me. Perhaps you could point out how self-centered and unsupportive she is being?? (Probably not, but wouldn't it feel just great to do it!) Hope your biopsy was OK??!!
    Take care

    Mar, that is so sad. I know its gotta hurt you but really it is hurting her the most. Sittin where I am sittin and I dont have my mom to see and talk to anymore. Not to mention hug and touch, I wish I could tell her to wake up. She is really takin you for granted.

    Wish I could hug you now. :l

    Hi Mar
    I wish I could give you a big hug too. Unfortunately, some people take the people closest to them for granted. It's sad and you don't deserve it. How DID the biopsy go??
    Love jen

    Mar, I do have a lot of respect for you.

    Do you think that maybe, and I am talking as one who has seen A LOT of this in her family, that maybe, just maybe, it is more "manageable" for your daughter to not to have to acknowledge the fact that you may have something serious wrong with you? Maybe, just maybe, it's easier for her to just kind of skim over the serious stuff and focus on the less important stuff to her, as if, it was of the utmost importance in order not to deal with the stuff that does matter. Are you still with me?

    To put my thoughts in a nutshell.... my mother's favourite saying was "least said... soonest mended". Now, if ever there was a saying that was soooooooooo wrong.

    Take care.

    Hi Mar, I feel your pain! I have a daughter that sounds very similar. I love her to death, but I have spoiled her rotten. She is thougtless, and self centered. She is also the exact opposite of me.We get along most of the time, but I am sensitive and feel that others should know what I am thinking. I don't like to complain about things and my family is usually amazed when I tell them that I have not been feeling well for along time, or that I had a cold, or if something has bothered me in the past....etc...they (my husband and my daughter....cut from the same cloth)...let everyone know when they have a problem. I have come to the conclusion that I have to be more demanding of people. It has been working! I don't think some people are built the same way as we are emotionally. I had a brain-storm a few days ago while talking about someone else and the way they let people treat them, and I said "I think that if you want people to treat you the way you want to be treated, then you have to demand it!" My husband stopped and listened and said...that's brilliant! I guess it is just common sence when you think about it. I know it will take awhile to get some things turned around, but I think I stumbled upon one of my major problems in life.

    AWWW Mar, of course you feel hurt !! You have every reason to feel the way you do !!! Those grandkids of yours are so lucky to have a compassionate person in their lives.. I agree with Gabby though, I'd like to send a few people to that "farm" she mentioned... Sending you a hug and positive vibes... We're here for you, Hugs, ~Niblet~

    ((((Mar)))

    You know what the answer is. Make a conscious choice. Not just in your actions, in your "take" on things. You are not remodeling your grandchildren's rooms for her, it's for them. When she asks when you will be done, ask all innocent like "Why, are the grandkids, complaining"? And me, I'm afraid I use sarcasm, which MWOers might have noticed by now Oh, is you MIL going to surgery? Must be hard to not know the outcome of things? All innocent. But that's me hon.

    Even with all that I would hurt too. Joe's son bragged about the Father's day gift he was getting for his mother's fiance.....which really She was paying for. And he didn't give anything to Joe, that hurt him too. So I totally understand.

    I talked to Evan about it and he felt very sad and spent lots of time w/Joe. But hey he's 12, it's a little more understandable. You want me to sit down w/ur daughter on the stair and talk to her too? I'll do it! Luv u hon and u are luved by many here, you know!:l
