"She can't stand to hear the horror her child has faced" is today's quote.
I can never talk to my mom about it. I've tried. The first time I told her she said "that happens" which is a part of a previous quote. I understand it, really. She explained it to me that first time, how she was just trying to calm me down. She tries to believe that if I don't think about it, it's like it didn't happen. For her, it isn't that she doesn't care, it's that she cares too much.
I tried talking to her when I went home last. When I saw his car, and I just wanted to talk about it, and him. She kept changing the subject, which hurt. But I guess it's okay.
She really is a good mom. We had a lot of bad points growing up, I'd say, but she's one of the best. So I try not to push her. It hurts not being able to talk to her about this but I'm starting to accept that this is how it has to be.
