My mom is actual crazy, and because of it I have been avoiding her for the past 4+ years, I lose track.

My dad doesn’t want to know anything about my life. We have an ok relationship.

I need this story about the peach rings and keith’s Mom to win most silly moment this year.

I'm friends with my mom, and we got even closer after my dad died when I was 16, however I fully understand that there are times you need to either cut yourself off from your family or need to establish clear boundaries with them if they are toxic people. My mother left home at 17 and never saw her parents again. I never met them, and we didn't go to their funerals. And from her stories, I get it. Her dad was a violent alcoholic and her mother minimally was depressive but undiagnosed and untreated, would spend weeks at a time in bed "sick," leaving my mom to bear the brunt of her father's rage and take care of her younger siblings. My mom worked two jobs while she was also going to high school, and had to hide her money because they'd steal it all. Some people are just shit and need to be left behind.

Mostly done with the ep but just wanted to pop in before work to say what a lovely episode this was. Laughed and had emotions as I left the voting booth. Good to hear Keith stand up for himself. Sad his mom is ill, surprised dad wasn't the one who fought for church harder.

Love and peace

"I've just said a dirty" is one of the funniest and most disturbing things I've ever heard

I think being friends with a single parent may be easier, especially if you both mourned the death of the other parent together. My dad died when I was little and my mom raised me completely by herself. She never even dated (as far as I knew) until I got to college.

My teenage years were super rough because I was rebellious, which is easy to do when you have one parent working to support the household, because they're not home much.

After I left the house and grew up a little, we became super close. My mom is probably my best friend in the world. We talk and hang out all the time. I can't imagine not having her in my life. I can't remember who brought it up on the show (I think Chemda) but this closeness is largely due to the fact that she respects my choices as an adult and we relate as people, not just mother/daughter.

My friends father-in-Law grabbed her boob when they were on one of those twister fair rides. He runs a swingers club 🤮

My F-I-L once grabbed me and creepily kissed me all the way up my arm to my shoulder, it still makes me shudder.

my parents and i get along great! my Mama is an understanding human person and even when she disagrees with the things i do, she loves me anyway and supports my being happy. she doesn't judge me and it's why i can be so open about my life with her. she's not meddlesome and keeps secrets like a boss. i know i'm lucky.

on a less fun topic, my Mamaw died of her dementia this summer. it was a slow downhill ride until one day it turned into a cliff and she dropped off it--unusual for the condition and in the end a merciful quickness. she needed more and more daily care. she fell a lot. lost track of things to where my Dad had to take on her financial and legal affairs. i saw her one morning, ambulatory and while not sure who everyone was, could respond to commands and answer questions. by the afternoon she was bedridden and losing her mind. the terminal stage was disturbing to say the least. she started talking and didn't stop, literally all day and all night, talking for three solid days. the hallucinations were intense. she became combative. i got into her line of sight wiping her face and i think i may have turned into the devil, whom she had been conversing with a lot, and she sat up straight for the first time since going down and took a punch at me.

Keith is right. they become children. i've changed my naked Mamaw's diaper. bathed her. changed her into and out of her clothes. fed her. held her hand while she giggled and babbled into the air. as hard as it was on everyone, there's not a moment i'd take back being there for her the way she was there for us kids. it's what Love does.

i don't mean to throw a big scary story out there, especially since Mamaw had something of an atypical experience that even had the doctors raising a confused eyebrow, but having been through it, it might be a good time to get together with your siblings and start thinking about who can be around, what kinds and level of care might be advantageous, what resources are available in their area (shout out to the Angels at Meals on Wheels), what her wishes are regarding her care if she loses her ability to communicate it. you want to plan now. dementia can get weird.
