Over time I had accepted her frustratingly impulsive behavior, snide remarks, and backhanded compliments as normal. I came to believe that that was what love was.At 29 I was diagnosed with cancer, and it changed everything. During the multiple surgeries, recovery from surgeries, cancer treatment, and rehabilitation I discovered that one of my moms favorite sayings, It’s all about me” wasn’t a joke at all. It was the truth, and I had somehow turned a blind eye to it my entire life.Youll see how I systematically distanced myself from her little by little until she no longer had any control over me, and as you can imagine she didnt like that one bit. Ive stuck to my guns, though, because my healing is important- and so is yours.In an attempt to understand what was wrong with our relationship I studied a years worth of unedited emails between us. It is through this project that I came to know what my mothers true priorities are. It really is all about her- my mother is an adult toddler.I hope this project can help other people in similar situations know they are not alone, and that it might help them find their own voice to stand up for themselves. We have only one life to live, and we deserve to be happy.*Author update: reformatted, some rearrangement of the Introduction content. Im also working on Book 2. The nasty emails kept coming after this book was originally published.
