Caring and support

A conversation from this morning:

Me: “Mum, I’ve still got that migraine from yesterday. I’m going back to bed.”

Mum: “Hmph. Aren’t you going to work? You better hope you’ve still got a job next month!”

There’s nothing quite like the caring and supportive comments of a mother. Sigh.

    I”m sorry about your mom but I have to say I laughed a little because my own parents are just like that. If she is like my mother she would be absolutely convinced that she was being caring and supportive by helping you see that you were in danger of losing your job and f***ing up your life. You don’t deserve that and neither did I but we didn’t get to choose.

    thinking of you and hoping the migraine subsided,

  2. Hi Kerro,

    Let me give you a more appropriate mothering comment:

    Sweet Kerro, I’m so sorry dear. Go lay down, here is your little warm comforting blanket and stuffed animal to cuddle with, and I will do send you some good healing Reiki energy right now to help you to feel better and later, when you want, I will bring you a nice little snack that I will make just for you, filled with love and good and healing thoughts to you.


  3. @ Di – funny, I can laugh now, too! It’s an utterly ridiculous thing to say to anyone, let alone a member of your family. I’m sorry you got subjected to such craziness, too. Thankfully I was able to let this slide off my Teflon coating. I’m guessing that’s some kind of healing! 🙂

    @ CG – thanks hun. ((hugs)) back.

    @ Kate – thank you, that’s so so sweet. You brought a tear to my eye. I’m guessing that means that somewhere inside is a still hurting little person. 😦

  4. The reply that springs to mind for me is along the lines of: “Aren’t you going to be civil? You’d better hope you’ve got a home next month.”

    Please send your mother to live with me for a few weeks. I’ll straighten her out for you. 🙂

  5. Dear David, I’m so glad you dropped by. I knew I could count on you to say something *sensible*’. LOL

    My mother will be on the next flight to Portland 🙂

  6. Hi Starclub/Carolanne – Thanks for commenting. Sorry to hear you have a mother like this, too. Mine also is a fountain, but i call it a cesspit LOL

  7. Thanks Di. The planets must be aligned as I was just penning a new post when your comment came through. Stay tuned 🙂
