Great to hear from you too. I'm impressed that you are able to meet with your mother in a therapeutic setting. Setting limits on my mother's insistence that I'm the "sick" and/or "crazy" one is about as far as I've got with her. She seems to have a very strong resistance to openly seeing herself as part of the problem. Perhaps it is too disturbing to her since my physical health has been so deeply and severely challenged. She is helpful in other ways though, and I'm grateful for them. Perhaps she just does things in a more covert way. Open communication was never a strong point in my birth family particularly around emotions or sexuality.
Much of my process of recovery is focused on healing my body these days. It definitely needs it and I seem to be making progress. Thanks for your thoughts and support.
Best wishes for your healing process.
Love is the answer
