Comment: I'm really jealous...

(See in situ)

I'm really jealous...

After last night and another evening of my mother calling me and dumping on me (she's a miserable person), I wonder how I will feel when she passes away.

She has been a pretty lousy mother and I never knew my father and he's gone. Now as she gets older (currently 74) I wonder what the future holds for me. No laughter with her, just misery. It's not like she has it hard or anything but chooses to complain about everything.

It sounds like you had such a great relationship with father and I have to say...I'm jealous. Didn't want to come to work today because my eyes are puffy from crying myself to sleep last night. I would have liked to have a good relationship with one of my parents.

I do have to say I'm very lucky to have an amazing daughter with whom I have a great relationship. She's in college and just got engaged and I try to focus on that instead of the bitter, unhappy person who I call my mother.

Sorry to dump on you guys...maybe just selfish on my part to try and feel a bit better.

I am sorry to hear about your dad. Sounds like he was a great guy!
