My mother has had bipolar all of her life but we didnt know it until a few years ago when she had a nervous breakdown. I knew that something wasnt right becuase she would never do the things that mothers were supposed to do. She never took me shopping never talked to me about anything really and never helped me school work. My dad did everything for me and when it came time to personal problems and "changes" my dad had to deal with and if anything it was dissapointing and upsetting but also embarrassing. All my other friends mom would hang out with them and do things with them but mine. She used to be a little bit more fun but not really. She never took me and my siblings to the beach or the park or played games with us my dad did that. All she would do was hang around the house, mope, cry, and sleep. Now that I have a child of my own it is devistating that she does a little more with my child then she did with me. I appreciate it but while i am at work she is supposed to be watching my daughter and instead she sleeps all day. I have spoke with her about this but she denys it and my father enables her to continue doing what she is. She is on medication and sees some one for this but it doesnt really change anytihng. Help me please and I being selfish or should she change??

I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips.
