Wow, dear anonymous, my ears welled I instantly,I felt like your story was mine. A result of an accidental pregnancy to a 15YO going on 16, young love in a strict 70's catholic family.My mother never let me forget or what I owed her for my life over the abortion pill. My parents stayed together until I was 30. They were in a very unhealthy mental and physical relationship that I saw the brunt of and I too experienced it at the hands of my cruel mum. As years went on and I became a mother myself I realised my mum had no maternal bone bone in her body, she was a selfish alcoholic narcissist, switching roles I felt I was her mother. an only child I Iived in a very military style household, I always had to ask if I could help myself to something to eat. At 16 after a 12 hour day at work id come home to my mum cleaning and drunk with music blaring at 9:30 at night...if I didn't like it I could go live somewhere else she'd say. She relished in believing she was the victim of my dad and her relationship. As I got older and I had a voice and was not going to cop abuse any longer. My anxiety when she would call in would be through the roof. Our last big blow up she said some very hurtful things and an accidental text which was meant for her friend stated.. wait until you die they'll come running. that was 2 years ago. My husband had had enough of her cruel taunghts. I live with guilt daily of my decision to step away!!
