Strange interaction with my mother from childhood?
What could be the reason why my mom is this way?
Whenever I am going through something or experiencing excruciating pain, I always handle it like a champ. When I a talking to my mom on the phone and we happen to get on the subject of my pains or whatever, she acts nonchalant and just pass over it. Recently, she ask me what’s wrong and I told her about an excruciating pain because of a female illness. She just says ’such is life’, and pass on to another topic in the most uncaring, coldest voice. Then before I could talk further (not about my pains), she just coldly told me she got to go. I had not spoken to her in a while.
The funny thing is, when she has a minor thing wrong with her, she mopes about it and whenever she’s telling me about it, she looks for sympathy, which I always give her. But I have a serious chronic ailment that she seems to care less about. To be honest, I never felt emotionally connected to my mom. Any thoughts about this? Why is she not willing to sympathize with me? (She’s very hard to talk to and listens to no one, if they don’t agree with her. Whenever we try to talk to her or even suggest how we feel around her, she get angry and we cannot even complete our concerns to her. Her mom was the same. We cannot do anything unless its by her calling. She makes decisions for us, even though we try to breath away to do our own thing. We are adults and she has control us from infancy. She gets angry so easily.
