I think Hollyandra's post is one of the saddest things I've read on these boards. I don't really CARE what her mom is feeling right now, for her to shun her daughter because her daughter won't drink the koolaide is just sad as hell. How depressing. Mom is an idiot. I hope Hollyandra is getting enough positive strokes from other people in her life that she's not feeling remotely guilty about this current situation. This just kills me - as a daughter and a mother.
I could totally see walking away from a husband or long term BF when the relationship
isn't working anymore. I could never
walk away from my children in this way. We might not talk all the time, but refusing to communicate at all? I would never do that, and I don't understand how anybody could.
