My mother always knows how to guilt me. I made a post on Facebook about how I missed my family and that I was tired of being the black sheep. this was her reply:
Now I haven't felt like I was part of her family since my parents divorced when I was like twelve or so. They barely made contact with me, save for my mom. When my daughter was born my fiance and I were living with my step mom and dad and she came to see us and took me, my fiance, and daughter up to see my great grandma. We came back to my dad's and step mom's place and there was an "intervention" waiting for us. Apparently they thought we were off doing drugs and other shit (which, by the way, we don't even do save for smoking cigarettes and very occasionally drinking and NEVER around our daughter). We don't let any of them know where we live that way they don't drop in unexpectedly or call DFS on us. As to why we never visit or let any of them see the baby is so that they don't try to take our daughter away again. Just.. so much shit."Beth, you aren't the black sheep, you choose to not be involved with your family, they don't choose to not have anything to do with you.....think about that.....you won't even give us your address or let us see the baby............"
I'll probably come back later when I'm not half asleep and add more to this.
