So...growing up, I was piss poor. Like...barely had food to eat, yada yada yada. I went to college, got my bachelor degree, started working. Met my husband...and now, we're blessed. Not rich...however, we don't have to worry financially. I done this because I didn't want my children to grow up wanting things that I couldn't afford.
My mom, she's a drunk, alcoholic...it's really sad. Well, she called today saying she needs 2500 dollars for "doctor bills". There's nothing wrong with her except she's an addict. Then she proceeds to tell me everything she done while I was younger...so my brother and I wouldn't have to go without.
She left us when I was 14...and haven't seen her since.
I recently redone my living room, and posted pictures to FB. She saw them...calls me and asks how much I spent on the living room. She goes on and on about how I spend all this money knowing (yes, knowing) she needs money.
Now, a few years ago she called me wanting help to stop drinking and pills. My husband offered that we would come and get her, pay for rehab and she could live with us under certain conditions. The agreements were...
1) She would never drink/take pills after rehab.
2) She would attend AA and therapy for her addictions.
3) She would smoke outside.
Other than that, all expenses would be paid for by us.
I'm so fucking fed up with her. She's 53, soon to be 54...it's really sad.
