so it was that you mean't, so she is more by herself then (living alone or something?)
Oh well, if it was that long ago and isn't a "problem" now then I would assume both just gone their ways or what? (and if you want to say something more about how your sister is now more or less?)

Is this before or after my father fails to die on his death bed, thus disappointing me with his survival?

These topics are starting to sound like you're assigning us homework. -.-





It's whatever you want it to be.

Sounds like something that came out of murder induced TV shows, I would obviously run for my life.

Here I go again peeps;

Your mother contacts you out of nowhere and wants to see you. You have not seen your mother in five whole years due to a terrible argument that happened between you and her. When she visits you, you ask her why she contacts you. She says because she wants to make up and become a family again. But your mother would never call you and she made sure of that. But out of nowhere she calls. What do you do? Do you let her back into your life or turn her away?

Enjoy!!!

The first time this happened, it was because my grandmother was dying. I packed my entire family up and moved the following week.

Due to another falling out, I have not spoken to her for five years now. She does not have my address or phone number. I would not answer if she called. The same goes for my sister and both of my brothers.

Grown ups gotta leave, but before I find my wife I'll need to put up with her

I had this happen, my mom went berserk when my kid was born. I had a different attitude back then and I told her she could either shut up about it or I would not be in contact with them again. I had almost no direct one on one contact with my mom until I divorced my X which was about 5 years later.

Looking back on the situation we where both wrong and stubborn. Personally if it happened now I'd be the adult and be open to talking it though. I have missed my entire adult life with my parents and they have very little clue as to what I do or my interests, in the same regards I have no idea what they do or their interests and they are about to retire. It really takes a lot more effort the longer you go to put right a relationship. You can choose a lot of things but you don't get to choose family. I suggest giving them as much of the benefit of the doubt as possible.

Out of curiosity I would listen to what she had to say, then I'd think about it for a bit.

Replace mother with father and I could easily end up in this situation. It's been three years and he's tried to contact me before. I don't want to talk to him though. I kind of fear the day he inevitably shows up at a gig after finding out about it, or I bump into him on the way to band rehearsal in the same city he lives in.

I would my mum sure we could talk, I would like to know more about what the argument was?
