I have an amazing mum who my sister and I have always been open with and we can tell her anything however as has been mentioned I’m one of those people who doesn’t like to burden her with the really crappy stuff. She’s had some hard moments in her life and I just don’t want to unload on her but the important thing is I know she’s there for me whenever I decide to open up. In the meantime I do have a sister and close girlfriend who get me through the really rough times. But like you I have sons and I hope they too know that they can tell me anything and I’ll always listen and help them get through difficult times just as you and your husband did.
What a vindictive person who only apologised (unconvincingly) because she was held accountable by the public and her employer.
