Do you have a good relationship with your parents?

If you're estranged, why? What caused it?

I haven't seen my parents for over 15 years. They were mentally and physically abusive and my sperm donor was an alcoholic.

  • Neither of my parents are in my life.
    I cut contact with my mother for 3 years when I was in high school, then tried to have a relationship with her when I was 18. I rode the crazy coaster for several years before finally giving up. I haven't had any contact with her for 7 years. She's not necessarily a bad person, but she's not a stable person and I always felt like I could flip a coin to figure out which mother I was speaking to on any given day. Would I get the happy loving mother or the insane paranoid person? I just couldn't do it anymore.
    I cut contact with my father almost a year ago. He is a disgusting human being. He's a liar, a loser, and a drunk. My kids are afraid of him.

  • Why are you singling her out?

    answersjunkie is an obvious regular that came back under a new name.

  • tnm786 I suppose so if you say so since you are a regular

    Well if you are not a regular under a new name - I find it hard to believe a level 9 member would be calling people out.

  • I guessed she was someone returning under a new name because why else would she be called 'Answersjunkie'? Anyone making a new profile on CM wouldn't even know that Answers existed on the site.

  • Yep, my parents (all 4 of them) rock. They are all there for me and support me. I wouldn't survive without them.

  • Also Answersjunkie you never really responded to the OP's question. So did you intentionally come here to call someone out!
