She passed away peacefully at age 88. She was my abuser 55 years ago when I was 13. She joined AA when I was 15 and stayed sober ever since

I have found myself downplaying my mother's passing. With casual friends / business associates I simply say I had a family member die. Really want to avoid telling anyone that it was my mother

Lots of mixed feelings here - but have a good support group and T to talk about this with

thanks for being there

Keep separating the hurt and abuse from your innocence, your inner safety and your ability to competently support yourself. Keep up the recovery work!

I think you made the correct "downplay" her death.

The death of my mother was the happiest day I had ever experienced.
