I can understand how you would see it that way and it would be a lie if I said my intention wasn't to start drama.

However, I have never said anything untrue in this thread and I believe with all of my heart that I abandoned my mother. She suffered from BPD and I believe my actions contributed to her eventual suicide. I carry deep guilt over that.

Quoting amomynous_j:

so you cut them out of your lives.

again

"abandoned them" is exaggerating and purposely misleading. 

Quoting Anonymous:

I did mean my mother and sister. I also mostly meant emotionally abandoned. I had been living on my own since I was 17 and had temporarily moved back in with my mentally ill mother. When I left, I didn't tell anyone. I left letters explaining the situation and telling them not to contact me. I had intended to cut off contact. Luckily things worked out and now my sister and I have a great relationship, though unfortunately long distance.

Quoting Mychele:

That was my question. She could mean her parents an siblings.


Quoting Ber-Lynn:

Did you abandon a husband and kids?

I suppose you're right. My mother was hurt that I left without a word and tried to cut off contact.

No, I'm not Marcie! For anyone interested in knowing, I have no problem sharing my SN. I'm not ashamed of my choices, though I do have a few regrets.

Everything I've shared in this thread is true, but please don't be sad for me! I'm extremely happy and am convinced that I did the right thing, even though I made some poor choices along the way.

I do believe in karma. I believe that my choices contributed to my mothers eventual suicide. It's something I deeply regret and I carry a lot of guilt over.

Quoting redneckmama4:

Are you Marcie????

My long, lost stupid-ass cousin???

I hope it's not true but sadly, I'm sure it is.

Karma's a bitch is all I can say...whether you believe in it or not...

I can relate to what you were feeling, Op, my mom has schizotypal and histrionic personality disorder and I stayes with her until,I was 22, I just turned 23. People who have never experienced life with a mentally ill person won't understand. I am glad you found happiness but I am sorry about your mom.

Thank you so much. Looking back, I feel as though a part of me was trying to escape. Mental illness can be so devastating on families :(. I'm sorry about your mom too.

Actually it is trolling to post something inflamatory in hopes of eliciting a negative response.

Quoting Anonymous:

The main reason was boredom last night. I don't really care about my status. This is my first ever "confession." It's not just a troll. Everything I've said is true.

I'm also really interested in the way people assume and respond to things. I think it's directly linked to how they relate the situation to their own life.

 You're posting this to what? Up your status? Pure Boredom? Just a troll? What's the deal.. inquiring minds want to know & Springer's not on??

So, you're single and didn't leave your child? Only your mom?

I won't read all the pages but what I have read seem to be excuses why you are how you are...which to me sounds callous.

I moved out when I was 15, never had a dad and my mom is loony...I will NEVER use any of that as an excuse to why I'm bein' emotionally void. Or for any other *issues* I may have.

We all grow up how we do, move on from hurts in our lives and become better people in the long run. Well, some people do...

My mom tried doing that. She was 41 and he was 20. So wrong.

Fair enough! Though I did say it's not JUST a troll, not that it wasn't a troll at all =). I then explained my other motivation, beyond simply the drama.
