Estranged Mother's Suicide
I'm wondering if anyone out there is dealing with the death of their estranged mother. I had made the decision to stop talking with my mother 14 months before she died. The guilt and shame won't leave me alone and I fight everyday to cope with the feelings. She was a very critical, judgemental person and would not stop complaining about my siblings to me. We tried to help her financially but she witheld information about her debt and manipulated me into giving more. There are so many layers to the grief I feel, it's difficult to sort through them. Anyone else coping with a similar situation that can add some insight?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
