I disassociated myself 3 years ago BUT have never told my mother, as she lives quite a distance from me in the UK. I've have told her that I no longer go to meetings, neither does my son, who is 16.
I haven't seen her for 3 1/2 years. I offered to come visit this week but she was incredibly offhand with me and said she couldn't meet with me today as she was on the ministry!! I would only be able to be around for 2 days due to work etc....
I am so upset, even though I should know what she is like by now. Even when I was a witness, she always made me feel inadequate in some way. I didn't help that I married out of the truth and she can't seem to understand how my marriage is still working and we've raised a good kid. She never seems interested in him either, never even given him a bit of pocket money or present BUT she has money for taxis to the kingdom hall and hotels/transport to the conventions.
Sorry for the rant but I've had enough.
