I am 46 years of age. My Mom stopped talking to me when I was arou39 for about a year until she broke a rib and I went to see her in the hospital, after that she started talking to me again. Then, again in about 2002 she did it again. Both for a reason that my brother could see had nothing to do with me. In 2008 she got married, said she had therapy and called me and said how sorry she was for it all and that it would never happen again. Now after two years, birthdy, christmas cards, etc telling me heartfelt reasons she is so grateful for a daughter like me.. she is doing it again. She does not always tell the truth, is very passive agressive... I have known this all my life. I accept her the way she is bcause after therapy she was the same person, that she has always been my whole life. What am I missing here? Why does she do this? she has stopped talking to friends and other family members too,my brother includedAnswer Question

Does she have issues with depression?

My DD is 48 and I'd be devastated if we didn't talk at least once a day. I'm so sorry hon and can feel your hurt and confusion as to why she is doing this and you probably will never really know why. It's obvious to me she has some kind of mental disorder and can't seem to help herself, having said that, she is emotionally abusing you and the family. I would keep my distance if I couldn't except her as she is which would be very hard for anyone. Good luck hon, I wish you the best.

As Bad as i hate to say it- i am glad i am Not Alone! My Mom has done the Exact same thing to me! I'm 44 & for 39 Years i put up with it- i finally cut All ties with her 5 Years ago (January 14th was 5 Years) b/c my Heart could not take it anymore- i will Never Understand why she has done that to me but, it has taught me to be a Much better Mother & there is not Anything in this Whole World that would make me not talk to my kids! Hope you work it out with your Mom!
