I just want someone to read this. - Page 2

post #21 of 53
I read and understand what you mean. I spent many years looking for a Mommy and pretending my father was more of my Daddy to me then he is.

Thank you, mamas. It is so nice to be heard. This kind of revelation is one I have never had before, so I was feeling both nervous and excited to share. Someday I want to share this post with my mom, but that day won't come for a very long time. Maybe never. We'll see.

I read. I was adopted within the family... had a daddy and knew my bio-father. I loved them both and hated them both. It's such a convoluted world, sometimes.

Love to you, mama. My eating issues still persist to this day (Goddess help me, I just got off the scale ). I have always wondered if my problems with self-perception are related to my early-childhood abandonment. I have to say... I feel somewhat better, deep inside, knowing I am not the only one with problems stemming from that feeling. I hope we can both heal.

So many s to you...

I have been exploring some somewhat similar issues about my mother. And I do have a dad, but he stopped being Daddy when he started drinking.

Thanks for sharing your blog.

I'm sorry mama .

My daughter is 8 and struggling with her father's abandonment right now. She has a 'dad' she's known since she was 1, but still mourns the abandonment of a father whom she remembers but won't see her since age 3. She talks about it a lot even to strangers, teachers.
If you can save my child any pain, mama, please tell me what I can do for her.

I read, Kris.

You deserve to be loved. You are loved. Saving a big hug for the next time I see you.

I read it, too. *Hugs*

I was an angry child, as well, though didn't have any younger siblings to take it out on (and the older ones where TOO much older to do so... I was adopted, too). I still haven't figured out what all happened in my childhood to lead me to who I seem to be now.

Another mama sending you hugs and healing thoughts. My son is adopted and I live in fear that he will not handle the news well when he's older. His story is full of abandonment and drugs and mental health issues and I pray I can help him process it all when the time comes.

Lean on your hubby. I hope he can understand and support you through your healing.
