  • Friend, but a crazy one, she has papers to prove it!

  • After about an hour with my mom I need a drink. Not necessarily "foe," but it's good that we live 300 miles apart.

  • friend, but her advice isn't as up-to-date as it used to be as she gets older more out-of-touch with current technology and how laws change, etc. Kinda tells me that after our kids leave home and as we retire from the workforce, we aren't as focused on things as we once needed to be.

  • this is hard to answer as i was fosterd, so never had the chance to be close to my mum. my aunt brought me and me sis and bro up with her daugther. she always wanted us to call her mom, but i never could and i could never bond with her the she and her own daugther did. i always had contact with my mum, but my aunt was so jelous that she would make us all feel bad for talking to our mom, so as the years went on it was easier not to talk to my mom so i wouldn't get a hard time of my aunt. so i keep alot to myself. now that i am recently married and having my first baby and i live very far away from them(they are in ireland, im in new york) i decided to get in contact with my mom again and try to start over with everyone as an adult. but i admit i still find it hard to talk to either of them as my mom or friend, cos they hate each other and when i talk to either, its not about how i am, its about wat who did to who.

  • I do miss how with it she used to be and how I could rely on her for almost everything and be pretty sure she was right most of the time. Nowadays though, not so much. She means well tho, but I miss how it used to be. When I think of her I always think of her being how she was when I was still living at home and she was being Supermom. Now she's just.. mom. lol

  • She was always my foe, she was abusive and and addict while I was growing up. Now, though, she is my "phone" friend. I can talk to her about anything but we within 200 miles of each other for more than a couple days or so. I live 900 miles away...

  • I have a mom that I have been looking out for my whole life.
    It's kinda like our roles are reversed.
    I wouldn't reccomend it either!
