My Mum


I'm a SAHM to a 2 year old and husband works away, I don't know if I have too much time to reflect on the shitty things but looking for any words of wisdom/reassurance. My current situation is I have no relationship with my mum she is severely mentally unwell and since the age of 15 whilst looking after my younger siblings I tried helping her over and over, at the moment she is severely addicted to prescription meds and alcohol I have cut ties with her for good now because it was affecting me and my family too much. She has no interest in her grandchild she's not been around him more than 20 mins at a time since he was born. Every where I go and look I see other mums out with their mums or grandmothers having a great relationship with their grandkids and it kills me, I do everything alone, and have done for as long as I can remember. On my partners side his mum has no interest either and lives interstate he wouldn't even no her walking down the street. As for the grandads they aren't present either. At minimum once a day I reflect on how my son has no family as side from my self and partner and I worry about the affect this would have on him in the future. I know a lot of people say it only matters about his parents but in all seriousness I feel like he will be the only child without those grandparent stories. I feel when I look around I just see so many happy families and I would love nothing more than that and I hate that there's nothing I can do to change that. I see so many of my friends achieving things or do things with the support of their families and I have none. So I may be having a bad day or bad week even but please tell me I'm not alone and that my kids will be fine without grandparents and this is my own personal battle ?
