Bloody hell, girl.

I'm very glad, for you, that you have taken a step like this; just don't let her put any sh*te onto you.

it was odd..i saw her in the supermarket.....i had changed my hair and obviously the kids had changed and she didnt recognise us.....i cried all the way round cos i thought she was ignoring me. thought that was that. we went and put the shopping in the car and dd needed the toilet so i had to take her back in. mum was coming towards me so I stood in front of her trolley...MADE her look at me....she sort of did a doublr take and then started crying and said 'oh my darling.....are you ok??' i said 'no' and we both started crying. She suggested that we needed to talk so I took dd back to the car and DH took the kids home. Me and mum went and had a coffee and talked for 5 hours We both aired our grievances while the other one listened. She said how sorry she was for all thats happened in the past. I didnt apologise which I was quite proud of cos usually I crumble and keep the peace. I told her I am having couselling and am on ADs and diazepam and she was shocked. I told her about how much everything that had happened had affected me and how much I've wanted to die. Again....shocked.

Anyway, the long and the short of it is that she is sorry. I know that it wont change overnight but we have agreed to take it one day at a time and see how it goes. I feel a little confused by it all, it was all so sudden and emotional. But I guess only time will tell........

You go girl - no apologies, tell it like it is, let her face the effects of what she did.

Proud of you.

Well done honey and well done for being so strong.

Ignore your DH it is a control thing, sorry if that is blunt, but it is. He will come around in time.
