I am codependent with my mother. From a very young age I took care of her through all her driniking, and even once I moved out and got older I still was taking care of her. I finally put my foot down and told her that I wasn't going do it anymore and I stopped talking to and seeing her for 6 months. Near the end of the six months I really began to miss her and she texted me all through out this six month period and I never responded. She text me one day and said I love and miss you. I decided to talk to her again. I was quite happy when I wan't talking to her. I was happy and a lot less irrtable. Now that I started talking to her about 2 weeks ago and I have been nothing but grumpy. Nothing has changed with her. She simply thinks now that I was just mad at her for 6 months. Not that I was trying to take some time for myself to mend my codependent tendencies. I don't know what to do I feel like to scream. I thought that not talking to her I may of learned how to deal with her better, but I didn't. What should I do? Should I try to set some boundries and then if that doesn't work, stop talking to her again? I feel like I rushed into talking to her again, and now I feel discouraged, like I have got no where. Please help....

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