Hello to the one who knows
to bad for them sounds like they are already adding up the bluebook value of your car and the equity in your house best thing you could do is leave them a thank you card for being there when you needed them most .sounds like you are a pretty good Mom ,sacraficeing out of your own needs to set them up with a place and give them a car too.it todays mentality what have you done for me Lately .
my own mom -after using her life savings up on her kids found her self having to pay things on credit she is now 83 but she has a small fixed income all she had left was her house -she took a reverse mortgage and it helped her to get alot things she wanted -I hope she spends it all becouse she was always there for her kids even at her own expense my brothers and sisters will be in for a surprise
Sorry to hear you are going thru p.c without alot of support from family and realitives I can feel your pain -My wifes family is the same her first cousins have never called her only one , they know she is an only child ,she only has one son and he has not called her in over a year -and he knows what this cancer is about -there is no birthday card mothers day card or flowers --and we only hear from the wife 2 weeks after we sends ,birthday or christmas presents to the grandchildren -also another grandaughter that has not called in a year also
I don't know if the hurt is intentional but is is so selfish and uncaring and at times I see it is much harder for my wife ,than the rest of the issues that go with pc ,and it is so unnecceary I mean is it really so hard to send a card or call ---All I am saying is you are not alone -and yes you deserve -their attention where would they be without you Take care ,keeping my fingers crossed you get a card ,but if not remember we all care about you Tom

I'm so sorry your hurting now, I will be praying for you. And I think the hardest thing is to pray for our enemies or those whom have hurt us, but it does work. Sometimes when I have a hard time praying for the Poop poo heads, I start with "God please put your hands on them before I do" I have a sister n law who did everything for her kids, buying the cars, money like she was a ATM, paying for college, and now she's losing her house, has no job, or a car, and she's mad at her kids for not bailing her out either, unfornately they have never learned to take care of themselves, why they always had Mom. Feel sorry for your son, pray for him, pray for yourself, pray he is a better father to the child he is going to have. I'm 4yrs post whipple, with new things happening, (not good) but staying happy is my number one thing to do. Go for a walk, go to the beach pack a picnic lunch. Go to church. Oh yes, I'm so broke I can't even pay attention! ha, ha... I am a survivor, a whipple warrior! I had to get food stamps last year and even get food from the food bank at churches, but you know what the people I met there were great, and there stories were just as devestating, but were still smiling. So hold onto your underware during those shitty days, learn to forgive that son of yours, hopefully you'll get to see your new grandchild, and the first thing on your bucket list should be to smile and laugh like you haven't laughed in a long time. I will be checking back in on you, consider me your guardin Angel. I send all my love and good hopes for you my friend, Love Pam E
