    Do you have a good relationship with your mother?

    Do you get along with your mother? Have you always gotten along? What are some things that have happened that may have kept you apart at times?

    Yes. We butt heads every once in a while. But we still go shopping with each other once a week, share plenty of stuff on facebook, and our fights never last long. Some things that kept us apart were grandma's death, me moving out of the house, my anorexia during high school, and my choice of friends.

      That's nice that you still spend time with your mother. I have a 15 yr old daughter and sometimes we do butt heads. It's sad for a mother because you're not our babies forever.

      Nope, but don't get into any huge fights that break you apart for years. It's sad to see mother's who never talk to their children because of a fight.

    My mom died when I was 15 but up until then, yes we had a very close and good relationship.

    Also have a great relationship with my daughters. I refuse to fight with them because my relationship with them is more important than my being right in any given situation.

    No!  She left me when I was two days old, with her parents & also left behind a short note for her mother before running away in the middle of the night like the coward she is.  She took off to be with a man she met while pregnant with me & married to my Dad.  She was only 17 but knew what she was doing.  The man she left me to be with had told her he'd Never raise another man's child so she knew that I couldn't be a part of her life with him.  My maternal Grandparents raised me & always encouraged me to give my natural mother a chance & so they forced me to spend many summers with her & communicate with her.  I didn't have a choice in the matter.  At age 14, I went to live with her to see if we could build some type of relationship but her scumbag husband, the same inbred, backwoods dolt she left me for 14 yrs before, came after me sexually, shortly after I moved in with them.  I didn't have a trusting relationship with my mother at this time & didn't feel I could go to her so I instead went to my high school counselor & told her what was happening.  I also let her know that my mother's, husband's, Father had touched me inappropriately more than once.  The counselor called my mother before I'd made it home from school that day & when I walked into the house, my mother began screaming at me & telling me I was nothing more than a F'ing liar who came there to ruin her life & if I didn't apologize to both her huband & to her father-in-law, then I could get the 'F' out of her house!  So, I called my Grandmother's sister, packed my bags & left!  After that, my maternal Grandparents tried many times to force me to let my mother back in, which I did to some degree but I got kicked in the teeth again & now have not spoken to her for about 12 years.  The only true sadness I have about it is the fact that I have two younger sisters & a younger brother that I haven't seen since they were all under the age of 10.  That hurts a bit!  As for my mother, I hope to never lay eyes on her again but I fear I my wish will not be granted.

      I'm so sorry to hear about this. It's ridiculous how some women choose to ignore their children in these situations. It happens all too often. You're better off without her and you're a stronger woman to boot. I wish u well sweetheart.

      Thanks MissJamieD - I Agree!  I've left her behind but the Grandfather who raised me, her Dad, keeps trying to get me to play nice with her.  He doesn't understand what that would do to me & I guess he never will.  Karma is a real B- is all I can

    I have a wonderful relationship with my mother.  She has always been my best friend and confidant.  She's always been my shoulder to cry on,  the one who lifted me when I was down and no matter what I have done she's always stood by me.  I am blessed to still have her here.  She lives with my daughter and her family now.  Our family is very close.

    before she was down with stroke, our relationship was on and off because of her behavior. She tends to annoy me by asking me to call her or she calls me every weekend and tells me about her past grievances, how she hates my dad, etc. These stuff i already knew and she is repeating the whole scenario like a tape recorder. But after she had stroke, everything changed. She doesn't talk about the past nor present. She just needs my companionship because no one talks to her at home. I understand her situation so I would call her every weekend and try to help her remember the past and present events. Our relationship improved and she trusted me more now.

    I have had issues with her but I try to put that behind me and have a decent relationship with her.  It helps sometimes that we live ten hours apart.
