Mother's Day has been difficult for me since I became aware that I don't have a mother who is the way mothers are supposed to be (nurturing, encouraging, non-judgmental, stable) and if I didn't have a disability since birth and hadn't been lured back home after I started to gain independence I'd have little reason if any to have stayed in contact. Just feeling trapped mentally and financially. If I'd had to sense to run and stay gone when I did that would be one thing. Most people I know who had cruel parents got out early. Those of you like me who believed the lies, how do you deal with it?
