I struggle accepting feelings of warmth, safety, and friendliness for myself because I was taught to be unseen, unheard and unimportant as a child. Today those feelings came slamming back into me. I learned that my own mom labeled me as bipolar when talking to my ex. My own mom helped him gain power to keep my daughter away from me. Her claims are patently false beyond belief. I had to undergo 5 mental health evaluations & a forensic psychological exam to refute claims about my mental health. My own mom. Hurt me deeper than anything I suffered from my ex. This is the story that keeps on giving.
