Hi Jeanette.  My mom passed away on December 15th of 2010.  Like you, I was not her favorite daughter.  She was 38 when I was born.  If you do the math, you'll see that she was in menopause the same time I was in puberty.  My Daddy worked away from home so most of the time, it was Mama and me home alone (sister is 14 years older so she was already married and lived away).  I was a 70's era pseudo hippi and Mama was a depression era product of a puritanical mother, so it is obvious this was a formula for opposition.  We got closer as I aged and she realized I was not as bad as she first thought.  She lived with me the last 6 months of her life and so many times, I found myself resenting the hurt of my youth.  She had dementia so there was no point in trying to discuss this because she didn't even know me.  But in her final days, when she and I were alone, I whispered in her ear that I know I wasn't exactly the daughter she wished for but I did the best I could at finding my own way in life and I hope I turned out better than expected.  I also told her that whether or not she realized it, she was not always the model Mother but I forgave her and hoped she also forgave me.  I have peace with this.  I don't know that she heard me but I'm told hearing is one of the last things to go so I have to believe the message was received.  I hope she forgave me as I forgave her but I'm the one living on so it is important for me to rest easily knowing it is off my chest and I communicated these feelings to her.  If you did not get this opportunity, I'm sure there is an understanding that passes between Mother and Daughter that is one of forgiveness and whether or not it is spoken, it is known.  God Bless you.

My Mom passed away on the 22nd of March. Imiss her terribly even though we didn't have a good relationship. 
I have chosen to focus on the positive but am still confused why she was so hurt all the time
When I gallant my older sister it's like we are talking about2 different moms.
I love my mom. I want her back so I can fix things between us. So I can
understand  her better. 
I think there is maybe a mistake happening here. I am not Jeanette. It seams. We are having 2 conversations.

My Mama and I were very close and she is/was the most wonderful person there ever has been. My sister on the other hand was just the opposite. My sister took my mother away after my stepfather passed away. My sister was so nice she didn't show up for his memorial. He also was a wonderful man.

What I am looking for is a good loving home for my 2 pugs so that I can join my mother. I have nothing to keep me wanting to stay here. Once I have found a home for my pugs oi will join my dear sweet wonderful Mama. I cannot continue without her.
I'm sorry Baby-daughter.  I thought I was responding to the post left by Jeanette.  I apologize.  When I read her post, I felt I was reading my own history.  So I was compelled to respond.  As for joining my Mom.  I have no doubt I will see her and my loving Daddy once again.  But I hope that will be in the distant future.

Good advide Legacy.  I told Baby-daughter that I also have low moments.  Not just related to losing Mama and Daddy but low points in life in general.  Since my early years I have always thought that suicide was a solution to life's problems.  However, I delay that thought then I have a great day, great week, great month, etc. and I wonder why I ever had those thoughts.  Acting on those thoughts would have prevented my from finding the new friends I have now, or seeing my step grandchildren.  I would have missed so many moments in life.  So for every time my thoughts get dark, I remind myself of what wonders I maymiss.  It gets me through and helps me see the light.  I understand you have multiple  health problems and things seem so gloomy but you have to have hope that life will improve.
