  • Like when I call my mom, here lately she has been giving me the brush off. She is too busy watching her soaps, mind you my mother is 1900 miles away from me. So I do not get to see her much. My mom is a big part of my life but it seems when she gets around a certain family member she tends to give me the brush off like I do not matter much at the moment. But if I don't call her for a while she will than call and say " OMG" you okay? I am like yes, why? Well I haven't heard from you lately, and I am like well everytime I try to talk to you you don't want to talk to me. After she is done with this certain family member or should I say after the certain family member is DONE using my mother than my mother will start talking to me. I am just really annoyed at the moment.

  • My mom doesn't give me the brush off REALLY but here recently all she's wanted to talk about is my little sister. And that annoys me - because I'm tired of discussing my little sister and her stupid, reckless choices.

  • Yes, my mother disowned me due to my brother poisoning her mind about me. She didnt even ask me if these things were true she just believed him. I have not talked to them in 5 years.

  • Thankfully, that has never happened to me.

  • Just remember that she loves you, and any moment you might lose that. I lost my mom just last week, and I wish I could have any contact. Just tell your mom that you love her and miss her and that you want to talk before it's too late.
