You wanna talk about something today? Well, linkup with some fabulous girls for some Tuesday Talk - Jessica or any of the other hosts. :)
Today there are a few things I wanna talk about:
1. My hip. I talked a lil bit about my looming procedure on my hip. I had surgery on my right hip about five years ago for hip impingement, well, it's back & I have to go through the whole thing again except this time both the specialist & the surgeon have since retired so I'm starting off new...kinda. Well, the specialist my primary doctor has me set to see doesn't have a great reputation, however, he's done work for my husband & his parents & they like him. So, I figured that I will go meet with him & if I don't get a good feeling, I'll go elsewhere. I already had anxiety about this whole situation & now trying to find the right doctor to take care of me is just creating more anxiety & I am not liking it. I know that it will all work out & I'll get the attention I need but it's just a lil scary right now.
2. My stepdaughters' mother. Sunshine has been trying to contact her mother for weeks now with little or no response. During one response, Sunshine was told by her mother that she was "busy doing things she liked". Apparently, talking to your youngest daughter is not something she likes. This whole ordeal is not new to me as their mother did the same thing to Trouble at about the same age as Sunshine is now. Nothing has changed except that this time, Sunshine WANTS to talk with her mother, Trouble just cut her out. I've said things before to their mother about staying in touch & talking with her daughter/s. I did it again this morning. I just sent her a message saying that she needed to respond or that eventually, Sunshine will just give up on their relationship. Although both of these girls have told me that I am their mom even though I didn't give birth to them, I still know that it hurts them that their mother doesn't talk to them & the only time she does is when she wants to get sympathy from them or yell at them about something they did or didn't do. It's just frustrating that a mother can treat her daughters that way. I am sure that nothing will change but I know that I tried & that I have always been & will always be the bigger, more positive person.
