There is no calibration of motherhood and pain and triggers...
My mom was MERELY unapproachable... there in a physical sense but very much not there emotionally. We are still estranged and speak as polite strangers. There was a brief period after my parents' divorce when she spoke to me as a confidante, very disturbing...

so even though we are prone to say, "I didn't have it as bad as xxx," or, some such comparison; we can't really say that our suffering is any less or more when compared to another's. We all deal with situations differently; we all perceive our experiences differently. They can't and won't be put on a sliding scale. They are our experiences, and are valid.

That said, can I trade you my mom for a week? For cheap? She makes a good cup of tea (but that's about it).
