Greetings from my cave Daisym

I haven't read your other responses, I'm sure they're good. I hope mine is good, and I think it is. And I hope I'm not repeating anything.

Anyway, as I read your mother's comments, you know what I "heard" in them? I heard her asking you not to tell her. I heard the pain and the fear of a woman who doesn't want to have to face that YOU were the victim of the man she married.

I think she was trying to prevent you from telling her, and that she's told you that she has been able to disbelieve it because your sister is not reliable.

For whatever reason, you have chosen to protect her from your history -- which is probably self-protective. Maybe you could discuss this part of it -- *why* you didn't tell you mother this weekend -- at your next session, and see if that helps dissipate your anger enough to work on the pain behind it?

Back to my cave now, but much love to you...
