I logged on to FB this morning and my mother had posted this pic.
My Mum is either NPD or BPD (not diagnosed) and left my Dad when we just entering our teens after having a long term affair. She moved several hours away, and was simply not that interested in being a mother. I remember school holidays when Dad would insist we had to see Mum (we didn't want to) and it would be all organised and at the last minute she'd call and say she couldn't have us because she was going away with a friend etc.
As anyone who has a mother with these issues would understand, it is has not been an easy road, and she refuses to have any psychological help. When I saw this today, it made my blood boil. Not only did Dad never stop us from seeing our mother - it was THIRTY years ago!!! Why put something like this up on FB? What is she trying to prove? Does she want attention? Sympathy? She is the one that moved hours away - surely if she wanted to be in her daughter's lives she could have stayed in the same town after separating.
I know I probably should just ignore it - but I'm so tempted to comment and ask why she would put something like that up on her page. I guess I'm spoiling for a fight right now, lol, so I think ignore is probably best!!! What do you think?
