She is totally dependent on others to dress, eat meals, etc.
I asked her if she knew me and she said yes, she thought I was someone she should know. I told her my name and told her that I was her oldest child. She couldn't believe it, she said. Then she reached up and played with a flower on the edge of my sweater. "Oh yes", she said, "you're the "rich b**ch". I didn't quite know what to say at that. Then she said "you sure are pretty". She said that 3 times and I thanked her everytime she said it, hoping she would finally stop it. That statement was one I had not heard before from her. I was very uncomfortable.
I asked her if she could remember any of my childhood. She said no. Then I told her that I forgave her for the things she did to me. She said what things? and I told her it didn't matter anymore. She said she was sorry that she was mean to me and she said "I'm not mean anymore".
I kept the visit short and told her I would be back sometime. She said okay and then said she would try to remember me.
I went to my car and cried.
I'm strong willed and I tell it like it is. I make mistakes, I'm sometimes out of control, but I love and give with all my heart. Have patience with me as I heal.
