Hi all! A few months ago I wrote on here sharing a really low point in my life with my mums illness. I got some wonderful advice and kind words. Tonight I wanted to share something that happened earlier today. I was speaking to my mum on the phone. It was a very typical conversation to start with, she’s normally very distant, mumbling a lot when she’s not too good, accusing me of all sorts and then she said ‘I love you so much sweetheart’ !️ For a few minutes I got my mum back. It’s been so very long since there’s been any affection and any love shown (although I always know it is there deep inside) it’s just made me remember exactly why I go through this hell day after day, year after year. I’m sorry, I know I’m rambling and gushing but I just wanted to share good news as it’s rare we get good news and remind people to grab onto these moments to help us through the darkest days.
Lots of love to you all, I hope today’s been a good day for you and, if not, I’m thinking of you, you’re not alone in this nightmare.
