My mother and I have had a very cold & difficult relationship for a great number of years. I left home and went to work at age 15 behind it. Long story. Question: I am considering calling her tomorrow and asking her if we can talk about the problem (for the first time ever). I anticipate that she will fake-deny that there is a problem. Thereby avoiding any discussion about it. I am getting concerned that time may be very short to make any attempt at resolving the issues, she is 79yo (and in reasonably good health, good grief, she just retired from employment last year, about damn time) but I know that human beings have finite life spans and I am very concerned that if she pre-deceases me I will be all alone (no friends or husband anymore)and trying to deal with the grief and the unresolved issues all by myself. I know there is a Bereavement Community here, but is there any kind of Pre-Breavement Work-It-Out Community? Or do any of you have any suggestions?
