    I struggled on and off for a long time but Generally I am at a point now where i feel so sorry for my mum. How hard it must be to live in such a way. The only way I could accept it was to have empathy. Mind you this is my first pregnancy and I've struggled with my emotions and it's been hard. I start to doubt my myself and question myself. I'm just lucky that my dp understands because she has seen my mum in action.
    In your dp's situation I would say to try and learn to take it with a pinch of salt. Don't wrack your brain trying to figure her out, just have faith in yourself and your decisions.

    That is becoming another option for me also. I have done it before but I struggle though as it means I can't see my brother who is 12. She makes life hell when things don't go her way.
    MissY thanks for starting this thread! And good on you for taking action.

    Ohh hun big big hugs!

    Be careful as these lightbulb moments can make you emotionally exhausted and raw.

    I had loads of this and still do.
    My family have told me numerous times that i was never fostered lol. It was such a kick in the face when I befriended one of the foster children on facebook and they remembered everything!
    Its so amazing how you really do end up questioning your own truth.

    I still find myself very unsure of my own memories. I had people making them up for so long that now i struggle.
    My gran loves to tell people that i make it all up. its all in my head ...

    Oh wow. This is DHs childhood too!
