hello all I am doing okay dealing with a head injury..I have spoken A LITTLE with GD and also have not seen her and I still am not allowed.. I just keep throwing the love at them and not talking about anything controversial.l Someday the barrier will come down I am going to just keep my mouth shut from now on even when it is most difficult..just so I can see her.
Thanks to all you wonderful ladies! I know this happens all the time and I am not alone.

P.s. I have alerted the school "watch out" for my GD.

I am.doing ok. I have post.concussive syndrome, neck injuries, and am haunted by the terror of the event of the accident. It has been difficult but I am going back to work Monday.
I miss the way my life used to be. I always took pride in the fact that I raised two good girls on my own. My DD, the oldest was involved in many sports in which we traveled all over our state and I worked alot of concessions. I really just don't understand how she could turn out to be so hateful and use her daughter like this.
I am still talking with my GD occasionally, when she lets me and I have apologized and admitted my part. I only continue to send love and she still won't let me see her or my DD. she keeps telling me that we will meet and talk but she keeps finding excuses not to. after what I've been through life is too short and I just want to see them.
so very sad. I have not gotten any apology and everything is blamed on me. The daggers keep coming and I've been told by others that they enjoy my suffering, especially the SO.

I hope to all grand parents out there that they never have to go through this... and if you are not alone.


I'm sorry for your pain. I wish I had wise words that would help you. But I know all "do something for yourself" &"go be happy" comments won't help that ache go away. You're in my thoughts and prayers.

Thank you DixieDarlin! This forum really helps..it is good to sound off with others in similair situations. The jornalling aspect is also very healthy.
if I read some post correctly I hope that you find a happy place.. even if the GS is moving hours away.
