Hi Dr Richards
I'm 63 now and have the therapy series about 7 years,
I made a lot of progress but still have a long way to go,
I've have literally eaten my handbook, but maybe not enough,
But I have had a big setback.
I'll make it short,
I had a very controlling mother, and when she didn't talk to you
She made sure other family members didn't talk to me,
I come from a family of 10. My mother had her favorites.
Made sure I was kept away from family weddings,
She rejected me and my children, which hurt so much,
They were lovely children have grown up to be lovely people.
My brother died a few years ago,
he was the only one I was in contact with.
I was in contact with my mother
But she was as nasty as ever to me, and I could never find my voice.
She died last November aged 95,
She hurt me so much and I was never able to stand up to her,
Seen my family I hadn't seen for 25 years, it was very upsetting and my
Emotions are all over the place,
Family members wanting to get in contact with my children and me.
It's 25 years too late, and don't think there a bridge to build.
My son was very ill 20 years ago, he was 18, left fighting for his life
With a blood clot, an inherited condition, he recovered thank god,
but not having family support
Nearly killed, and they knew about him,
It's hard to believe people can be so cruel.
I suppose I lost all feelings for them.
Just sometimes I can't get them out of my head,
Would I benifit from the new up date therapy,
Or should I start over again on the one I have
Thanks for listening
